D'une prémisse simple et d'une mise en scène ultra convenue, on se laisse pourtant charmer par le talent et le charisme de Ronan. Le récit que l'on croyait si prévisible se dirige au milieu du film vers une avenue classique mais, avec surprise, de manière plutôt profonde et touchante. Malgré une recréation historique parfaite, on questionne tout de même ses nombreuses nominations aux Oscars.
Good performances and a setting and story I really enjoyed. Certainly the lead makes a decision that could be discussed with other viewers of the film, and I'm not entirely sure where I fall with it. Except I think ultimately she acted very much like a real person would, rather than a film character. So I understand her from a human point of view. We're not always as neat and tidy as film characters can be. Loved it.
It is unbelievable how Saoirse Rona's becoming more and more of a superstar. With plenty of memorable acts already n her dish, she has now become a real chameleon of acting in just 21. Her couple with Emory Cohen has a chemistry in Brooklyn that will take you all that 2 hours deep into their romance and carry you around as if you are in the middle of a Jane Austin novel. It is the little delight of the year.
