NO MATTER WHAT it is, it’s guaranteed that half the nation will be watching whatever movie RTÉ One plays around 9.30pm on Christmas Day.

4. Would it truly be Christmas without an awkward sex scene to watch with your parents?

The Brooklyn one was over *very* quickly… but that might have made it more awkward somehow?

5. Nanas around Ireland have had enough

6. But sure look, they got married so it was OK?

10. Brooklyn really does a good job at capturing the Irish emigrant experience

11. ie it makes you cry no matter how many times you’ve seen it

12. If you think she should have stayed with Jim, please leave immediately

13. It would have been a *bad* call

14. Domhnall Gleeson is sound and all but Jim is not the best option for Eilis, SURELY
