It’s the start of weepy Oscar drama season, and Brooklyn’s got an early lead. High Fidelity/About A Boy author Nick Hornby adapted Colm Toibin’s coming-of-age novel, with Saoirse Ronan starring as a young Irish emigré torn between a Brooklyn mechanic named Tony and her old pal Jim back home. The 1950s romance has received pretty universal praise from both audiences and critics (barring only The New Yorker, who called the film’s “sanitizations and simplifications” odious).
This one’s playing everywhere. The Avon, Jane Pickens, Showcase, Cinemaworld Lincoln, etc.
