Did You Know?
- Rooney Mara was originally cast in the lead role. However, her eventual replacement, Saoirse Ronan, was a frontrunner for the part since this movie began development, but she was too young to portray Eilis. The production was stalled for years, Mara backed out and when the project was ready to resume, Ronan had aged properly to fit the character and won the part.
- The registration ZL 4994 on the black saloon car is in an incorrect typeface. That style of font was not used in Ireland until the late 1990s.
- Eilis: I wish that I could stop feeling that I want to be an Irish girl in Ireland.
- Father Flood: Homesickness is like most sicknesses. It will pass.

the cinematography was great. went with a bunch of people, the girls cried, we all laughed and many couldn't stop talking about the characters during the movie. success
This is sweet, sentimental filmmaking of the old school, but it’s too sincere to get sticky. If “nice” isn’t the kind of adjective to put you off a movie, you’ll probably enjoy Brooklyn, even if you’re occasionally aware of its masterful manipulations.
Classily and classically crafted in the best sense by director John Crowley and screenwriter Nick Hornby, this superbly acted romantic drama is set in the early 1950s and provides the feeling of being lifted into a different world altogether, so transporting is the film’s sense of time and place and social mores.
