‘Brooklyn’ tops Kenneth Turan’s best films of 2015

Finding 10 films for a 10-best list can be a challenge and a chore. The year 2015, however, presented the opposite problem. In fact, the surfeit of worthy candidates encouraged me to throw caution to the winds and extend the list to 14. “Don’t be stingy, baby,” Greta Garbo once famously advised, and I’ve taken her words to heart.

This wealth of quality cinema made choosing my No. 1 even more difficult. As it turned out, one of the very first films I saw in 2015 stayed with me longest and made the most powerful impression. That would be “Brooklyn,” adapted from Colm Tóibín’s novel by Nick Hornby, directed by John Crowley and starring Saoirse Ronan. A feast of rich emotions presented with wit, grace and not a trace of sentimentality, this is the kind of film I’m always looking for but rarely find.
