I love films in the romance genre, though it often takes a willingness to forgive the predictable contrivances of the genre. Often the goal only appears to be satiating the audience’s desired outcome, which leads to cheesy and unbelievable results involving beautiful actors, manipulated emotions through sentimental soundtracks. Rarely is there a romance film containing characters resembling real people, with actual choices to make and difficult outcomes because of these choices.
is one of these rare films, demanding more from its audience while also paying
off with far more intelligent rewards due to the excellence in filmmaking. In
other words, Brooklyn
doesn’t sacrifice logic and character development for the sake of its romantic
moments, and this makes them feel earned.
