Soundtrack Review: #Brooklyn

The beautiful score for Brooklyn perfectly matches the film's delicate charm. Review by Matt Cummings Music isn't the only thing ingredient to making a good film, but it's an important element in crafting its tone. Composer Michael Brook's score for Brooklyn does just that, taking us to far away places and times that while strengthening the film's chances for a Best Picture nomination. Told through the eyes of Eilis Lacey (Saoirse Ronan), Brooklyn tells of a young Irish immigrant navigating her way through 1950's New York. After a difficult voyage and period of adjustment, Ellis is swept up in a relationship with a working Italian (Emory Cohen), who instantly falls in love with Ellis' sweet charm. But when her new life is disrupted by tragic news from home, Ellis returns to find that she might not be so ready to leave. Composer Michael Brook grants us with a glimpse into Ellis' world in different ways, from the playful Seasick to t

Movie Review: 'Brooklyn'

The period piece moves with a gentle grace, but it's story can't keep up. Review by Matt Cummings In Director John Crowley's period drama Brooklyn , the meager Irish woman Eilis (Saoirse Ronan) comes to America during the 1950's in search of a better life. Leaving behind the only world she's ever known, Eilis initially struggles in New York, working at a well-respected department store but feeling completely empty and homesick. Although she's set up in a boarding home with other Irish female immigrants, Eilis struggles to adjust to her new life, until she meets the Italian plumber Tony (Emory Cohen), who is immediately smitten with her. But when tragedy forces her to return home, Eilis is immediately courted by Jim (Domhnall Gleeson) and must make a difficult decision: stay and enjoy an opulent life or take a chance on Brooklyn and the love which awaits her. Based on the novel by Colm Toibin, Brooklyn is beautifully shot and well acted, with Ron

Oscar Hopefuls Struggle at #BoxOffice

Here's the reason why so many hopefuls have fallen on hard times. Story by Matt Cummings In a year that will go down as the most profitable in box office history, Hollywood is shaking its head over a new problem: the disastrous run of Oscar hopefuls. What seemed like a small issue back in September has become a full-fledged marketing nightmare. From Our Brand is Crisis to Suffragette , audiences have stayed away in massive numbers, even in the face of critical praise. Take Steve Jobs for example. The biopic starring Michael Fassbender has made only $16.7m in 5 weeks, tumbling 65% in its second weekend of wide release. But don't tell critics that: it still enjoys an 85% Rotten Tomatoes rating, making it one of the highest-rated movies of the year. And yet audiences didn't buy it. And then there's The Walk , Burnt , Everest , 99 Homes , Truth , Room , and several others that have walked a very short gang plank into cultural obscurity. So, why the sad
