Romantic Movie Scene Feature | Brooklyn's Eilis and Tony

Saturday, April 2, 2016

Today's post is coming to you borrowed - again - from Silver Petticoat. But since I recently (read: finally) watched Brooklyn, so being about to write about it in a Romantic Moment spotlight was such fun! I'll have a proper review on the blog (soon) where I'd love to get your opinions on this quiet and gentle drama. Until then, I'm glad to share a peek of this moment. There are spoilers in this feature, but I'm not writing about how the film ultimately ends - to discover that, you'll simply have to watch it.

The Story and Lead-In: Eilis and Tony

Eilis and Tony

Brooklyn’s impact and the love story between Eilis and Tony is about poignancy over passion. It’s about a young Irish immigrant named Eilis Lacey who travels to America in search of a better life. Once in America, Eilis finds herself heartbroken. She feels torn in two and alone in the strange new place without friends or the comforts of her home and family. But then, something changes. She meets Tony, a young Italian who treats her with respect and care. They go to the cinema together and he waits for her outside her work, walking her home. As time passes, a friendship and even a kind of subtle pretty romance blossoms. When a tragedy back home happens, it’s Tony she most wants to be with. He offers her a shoulder to cry on and comforting words she needed to hear. Continue Reading ➔
