I had very high hopes for this movie. I have long been a fan of Saoirse Ronan—she’s such a chameleon—and I’m a sucker for period dramas and love stories and anything to do with Ireland and travel and new beginnings. So you can imagine my relief when I loved it. Absolutely. The story was authentic, the cinematography was beautiful, and the many comedic interjections were both unexpected and refreshing. Go see it with your girlfriend(s).

  1. This looks like a lovely movie and I cannot wait to see it, too. In the meantime, I’m practicing learning to pronounce ” Saoirse.”

    1. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did! Apparently when she’s in Ireland it’s “Seer-sha” and when she’s in America it’s “Sur-shuh.” Her name in the movie is Eilis, which I absolutely love, and is pronounced “Ey-lish”

Don’t be afraid. I won’t smite you. Probably.
