Me dear mother highly recommended this film, as it reflects her own experiences coming to America. This romantic drama is a sure hit with the ladies. Four young girls who sat behind me were in love with heartthrob/Italian plumber Tony. Score one for Italy.
I’d mention half a dozen similarities of Brooklyn’s Ellis Lacey to my own ma’s plight, but the main one relevant to myself is her marrying a working-class Italiano from New York City, Brooklyn I believe. Fill in the blanks from there, and enjoy Brooklyn, a slow-paced, very common story of immigration, assimilation, and homesickness.
