BROOKLYN Ireland/UK/Canada. 2015. Directed by John Crowley. (105 mins.) Rated PG-13.
In BROOKLYN, Saoirse Ronan lights the way as our guide back in time, to a place where immigrants found opportunity, as well as open arms, in an America that looks oh-so lovely!
In this moving romantic drama, an ambitious young woman (Saoirse Ronan, THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL) is lured from Ireland by the American Dream in the wake of World War II and in search of a better life. She staves off loneliness by boarding with an amusing, catty collection of girls in a cramped boarding house with a stern landlady (the scene-stealing Julie Walters) to keep her in line, and she soon finds herself swept off her feet by a sweet Italian boy. But when family news brings her back to Ireland, she finds herself at a vexing crossroads about where to call home. Masterfully adapted by Nick Hornby for the screen, BROOKLYN is a rich, vibrant, stirring tale about finding one's place in the world.

A BRILLIANT YOUNG MIND is a sweet, smart, satisfying tale of grace and sensitivity!

A BRILLIANT YOUNG MIND is about more than connecting numbers - it's about connecting hearts.
SUFFRAGETTE UK. 2015. Directed by Sarah Gavron. (106 mins.) Rated PG-13.
SUFFRAGETTE is a relevant and fiercely intelligent period piece that perfectly captures the pulse and passion of a past era!
Profoundly moving, SUFFRAGETTE tells the story of the women who were foot soldiers in the fight for the right to vote in the early 20th century, ordinary women who risked their jobs, homes, children - even their lives - in hopes of breaking the cycles of injustice, poverty, and abuse that so many women endure. One such is Maud (Carey Mulligan), a laundry worker since childhood who joins the evolving movement guided by Edith (Helena Bonham Carter) and inspired from afar by the charismatic Mrs. Pankhurst (Meryl Streep). An exemplary homage to the working women whose passion, devotion and vision gained British women the vote, this evocative tribute is an inspiring and powerful reminder that positive change is always worth fighting for.
