Adaptation #143: There’s No Place Like Brooklyn


Kendyl and Jenn are back to discuss the film Brooklyn. In some ways more satisfying than the book, they don’t have many negative things to say about this adaptation. Great chemistry, hilarious dinner scenes and beautiful visuals are all they need to give this one a thumbs up.

Check out our episode on the novel by Colm Toibin.
