Movies Watched -- Brooklyn

Added on by C. Maoxian.

111 minutes so at least 10 to 20 minutes too long. A feel-good movie, "heartwarming," about a young Irish lass who emigrates (immigrates?) to America in the 1950s. Oddly structured since all the drama happens in the final third of the movie. It was well-made, the actress is very appealing in a pale, plain-pretty way. Has Don Draper's second wife in it, she's still beautiful and still can't act. I didn't fast forward, but it doesn't get a green (go) recommendation from me because it was a little too wholesome (i.e., fake). Yellow rating (consider).
