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.
The story of Lost River is at best one of a family trying to keep its head above water against the odds. But I don’t think you should watch this movie for its plot. It is one of those movies you just have to experience for its atmosphere.
