In Review!: "Brooklyn"

Glossy and gorgeous, John Crowley’s Brooklyn stars Saoirse Ronan as the young Eilis (that’s “ay-lish”) emigrating from Ireland to 1950s New York City, leaving behind her family and small village for the promises of American opportunity. 606 more words

In Review!: "Room"

An incredible fusion of all elements working in harmony, Lenny Abrahamson’s Room rises above audience trepidations of grimness to craft a triumphant human narrative. Adapted by Emma Donoghue from her own novel, the film begins on the fifth birthday of Jack, who lives with his Ma in a 10×10 shed where she has been held as a sex slave for seven years. 832 more words

Room Review

There is perhaps no relationship more primally loving than the one between mother and son. Not only do the typical loving responsibilities of having a child come into play, but in my observation, the best mothers of boys take it upon themselves to correct the evils that have been done upon them. 797 more words
