Brooklyn has three oscar nominations under its belt: Best Motion Picture, Best Lead Actress, and Best Writing. I can understand why it didn’t win, but I am still scratching my head as to why on earth it got nominated in the first place.
Michael Fassbender does quite a good job acting in this movie, especially considering he spends most of it hiding in a paper mache head. And that fake head things isn’t as gimmicky and annoying as I had feared when first hearing about this movie.
But that big fake head can’t hide the fact that it is a fairly non-eventful movie.
This low-budget sci-fi movie is the directorial debut of Alex Garland, writer of “The Beach” and “28 Days”. It is a deceptively low-key film with just a few characters, and indeed could almost have been a play instead of a film.
