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).
