Brooklyn Movie Review & Film Summary (2015) | Roger Ebert

Colm Tóibín’s 2009 novel “Brooklyn” is one of those books that seems like a miracle, a book that reminds the reader just how much power can reside in relatively unadorned language. The Irish-born writer’s book tells the story of Eilis Lacey, a young woman from a working family circa 1950. She’s bright, open and industrious, and there’s not much meaningful opportunity for her in her small Irish town. An Irish priest visiting from the United States sponsors Eilis for a job in the book’s title borough, and Tóibín beautifully tells of her uncomfortable crossing, her loneliness and alienation in her new world, how she finds her own way and finds romance, and what happens after she’s called back to her old home—away from the place where she’s been working so hard to make good.

The Golden Compass Summary

Meet our protagonist, Lyra, and her daemon Pantalaimon (the shape-shifting animal that is her soul), or Pan for short. They live at Oxford University's Jordan College, among scholars and other brainy-types. Lyra is an orphan whose parents were killed when she was very young. Her uncle, Lord Asriel, is her guardian. He's a powerful and sometimes scary man involved with politics. For the most part, though, she is cared for by the scholars at Oxford University, where she is also friends with a kitchen boy named Roger. When the book opens, Lord Asriel has returned from the North, where he has been conducting experiments involving something called Dust.

The Boy with the Topknot

"Know where you come from. . . but don't let it stop you from becoming who you want to be. . . "So many reviewers have provided a synopsis therefore I will refrain from doing the same. I will just share some thoughts. Sathnam laid taboo subjects on the table with an eloquence donned through years of a first-rate education funded by the same culture his loving mother and so many like her shunned; it was an irony not lost on him. Well, I suppose those many pounds in tax were well spent if he continues t"Know where you come from. . . but don't let it stop you from becoming who you want to be.

Everything you need to know about “Cloud Atlas”

This entire story is one big spoiler. See the movie, then come back here and we'll explain it to you. David Mitchell, the author of “Cloud Atlas,” told the Paris Review in 2010 that “‘Cloud Atlas’ is a novel about whose echoes, eddies and cross-references even its author possesses only an imperfect knowledge. ” Yet the directors of the new film — Tom Twyker, Lana Wachowski and Andy Wachowski — took a different approach to Mitchell’s brilliant book. They turned six overlapping stories into more concentric circles than the author had himself.

What really happened in Memento?

Unlike many of the Memento threads, the answers here are pretty good. You could write many thousands of words answering this question, and in fact I’m about to do that over the next few weeks. But here’s a very short version. The film is meant to have two competing and opposite readings (each of which has myriad variations, but we’ll skip those for now). Did Sammy have a diabetic wife whom he accidentally killed, or did Leonard? There is no correct answer; the point is that each viewer chooses the one they like better, that makes more sense to them.
