Release Date: November 27, 2013
What a truly amazing story this film is able to tell. Judi Dench with one of her best performances of her career as she plays as Philomena who had her precious child taken away from her as a young teen. Decades later, Philomena decides to search for her long lost son and a journalist is searching for a story and comes across Philomena. The screenplay is one for the ages, written by Steve Coogan and Jeff Pope. The transitions in between scenes and not spending a lot of time on one particular subject really helps the flow of the film and the movie will be over before you know it. I really enjoyed watching this film and I am looking forward to watching it again sometime in the near future.
