For a very long time, I thought this movie about a young lady immigrating alone in the 1950s from Ireland to America, is either about Saoirse Ronan's blue eyes, or about how slow a movie can be paced. But that was preamble to a story that applies to any immigration, even today (experienced first-hand by myself): do you stick to what you grew up with, or dare new values in the new land? Curiously, I saw Entertainment Weekly has written what I'd told a relative a week before: this is the year's best movie to watch with your Mom.
