But aside from its lead and thoughtful direction, the movie’s ace-in-the-hole might be its lovely, plaintive music by composer Michael Brook – Rodrigo Perez, Indiewire
Fully lyrical with tasteful Irish-appropriate inflections, the score starts as it means to go on with the tender “Opening Titles”: a violin (performed by Brook’s wife) immediately establishes the Irish connection, accompanied by a wash of strings, a gentle piano melody, clarinet and mandolin. It conveys the essence of Eilis’ journey in a nutshell. – mfiles
Michael Brook’s delightful score for the BAFTA Award winning Brooklyn (Outstanding British Film) is available now on vinyl through our partners Music On Vinyl, in a 2 x LP set which includes the films score and soundtrack.
Brook’s score and the films soundtrack serve as the perfect musical backdrop for Eilis (Saoirse Ronan) as she journeys into 1950s America. The initial shackles of homesickness quickly diminish as a fresh romance sweeps Eilis into the intoxicating charm of love. But soon, her new vivacity is disrupted by her past, and Eilis must choose between two countries and the lives that exist within.
