One of the best movies I have watched in a long time. It's a little slow moving but very captivating. I really got a feel for how our early immigrants must have felt when arriving in a strange land and how their hearts were torn for their loved ones back home
Saoirse Ronan and Emory Cohen are brilliant in this movie.
Saoirse Ronan performs brilliantly, especially in scenes with Emory Cohen as her Italian boyfriend. One of the best movies I've seen in the last five years.
Loved this engaging movie! As an Irish girl myself, it had very special meaning.
loved every minute of this movie
Great movie .... The star of it .... I found her so captivating.... Very enjoyable .....
Performances were very good. Movie was very well cast. Not much in the way of humour or real drama. Dragged a bit. If it wasn't for the two main actors, this movie would have been in trouble. Could have been much better, but not a waste of time.
Perfect! I went to see it twice. Expressions, storyline, action and holding on until the end. Real.
Excellent film adaptation of Colm Toibin's beautiful novel about a young Irish woman who struggles to make a life for herself in New York. Saoirse Ronan is outstanding and deserves an Academy Award nomination for her nuanced performance. A touching and heartwarming tale of a young woman coming of age. Bravo!
Beautifully filmed and acted. Sweet and real.
Excellent movie and great acting!
This movie should win best picture this year.
I thought that this movie was mainly a "chick flick" and it was. However, I loved the movie and would recommend it highly.
Loved this movie. It has everything, you will laugh, then you will cry, then you will be overwhelmed with romance. Every girls feel good movie. Also, a great reflection on leaving your home country and the trials of that experience. Beautiful movie.
Feel good movie of the year.
A fantastic movie. Definitely a beautiful story with superb acting. A rare glimpse of how real movies were made in the good old days!!!
Great story....truly classic and appropriate costuming. Loved it from beginning to end.
Sorry forgot to rate this movie, so I give it a solid 5 stars, but if I could I would give it TEN stars, that's how great it is.
This is a wonderful movie. I absolutely loved, loved, loved, it. The actresses and actors are superb. I found the story to be so heart warming and endearing, a combination of sad and happy. All I have left to say is I will be purchasing this movie for sure when it is released and will be watching it at least a thousand more times.
A superb movie in every aspect!!! A rare experience. Not your typical Hollywood offering. Probably the Irish and Canadian input made this such a fantastic production.
What a breath of fresh air this film is...lovely all around. If this doesn't win at least 1 Oscar the world is in worse shape than I thought.
boring and lame....a waste of time...
Really a fantastic film. Great story, great cast, happy and sad. I truly enjoyed it. The cinematography was excellent too. Fully recommend it. Watch out for Julie Walters and the other boarding house girls - they are hilarious.
