I’m a sucker for a good novel with a big fat love triangle in it, and it seems Hollywood agrees with me. The Notebook, The Graduate, Twilight, Hunger Games and Closer, are all stories involving three or more people all tangled up in a web of Love and Betrayal; even Bridget Jones was centred around a three way love story!
These types of stories make for a gripping read and fantastic on-screen action, and now the critically acclaimed Brooklyn can be added to that list of famous Love Triangles.
Based on the award winning novel by Colm Tôibín, Brooklyn tells the story of a young woman named Eilis, played by the Beautiful Saoirse Ronan. Elis uproots her life in Ireland and travels to Brooklyn, New York to pursue new opportunities. She soon finds love in the form of an Italian-American man called Tony, played by Emory Cohen. But when Eilis is forced to return to Ireland due to unforeseen circumstances, she struggles to decide between choosing her new life, or her old one. Especially when her old life has someone brand new taking centre stage, local bachelor Jim Farrel, played by Domhnall Gleeson.
Brooklyn has not only been nominated for three Academy Awards and a Golden Globe, but it swooped the award for Best British Film at this year’s BAFTA’s! So basically it is DEFINITELY worth a watch (and a read), take a sneak peek at these clips to get a taste of Brooklyn…
