Jonathan Kim

Brooklyn is a fine, well-acted, technically-proficient, inoffensive film that is very easy to like. But when a white Christian immigrant in a movie is extended more compassion, understanding, and humanity than actual non-white Muslims fleeing for their lives, we should all wonder why.
