Top 10 Romantic Films of All Time
Academy Award-Nominated film, Brooklyn stars Saoirse Ronan and Emory Cohen.
There's a reason this movie got nominated for nearly every major movie award imaginable -- it's that good. The story follows the journey of young Irish immigrant Eilis Lacey (poignantly portrayed by Saoirse Ronan) in 1950s Brooklyn. Though she willingly heads to America in hopes of a better life, she is emotionally torn from her homeland and those she loves. Eventually, she falls for the cute and unassuming Tony Fiorello (a charming Emory Cohen), but she does so cautiously, especially as she meets another man when she returns to Ireland upon her sister's death. Beautifully shot with gorgeous cinematography and top-rate acting, Brooklyn demonstrates the power of a simple love story sublimely told.
