    This is a older movie that I had previously seen, but my wife had not and I was delighted when I was able to purchase it from BestBuy at a good price so my wife and I can watch it anytime we want.

    Philomena

    |
    Posted .

    This is a really good movie and sheds some light on the plight of '50's era young Irish women that spent years in servitude to the "church" as an consequence of being an unwed mother.. This is based on the true story of one such woman who then got an opportunity to search for her son in her later years. This is a compelling story and makes a good addition to a good film library. The screenplay and acting are top notch.

    Philomena robbed at the 2014 Oscars !

    |
    Posted .

    Saw every contender for the 2014 Oscars and Philomena was denied the honor(s) that should have been awarded. Truly a story that was put to film and executed in the most unique way; it pulls you in, keeps you there, and rips your heart out..... just like FILM / movies used to do when film was art and not an attempt to obscenely exaggerate and corrupt itself in CGI or action or shock value for the 18 year old audience.

    Extremely powerful masterpiece centered on Judi Dench's acting genius. Incredible true story revolving around religion, family, love, sexuality and life itself. The journey will come full circle... And will leave you speechless...

    Impossible, Except it is True

    Judy Dench is a great actress and does an extremely believable portrayal in this movie. The banter between her and Steve Coogan is outstanding, realistic, and humorous a times. This true story is heart wrenching, and the movie is a "must-see."

    Judi Dench at her best.

    Dench gives a performance of a simple person that doesn't make fun and, in many ways, how she may know than given credit. Coogan gives definitely the best performance of his career. Great story, great film.

    I love Judi Dench so that is what drew me to this movie and she did not disappoint me! It is a delightful story of a woman trying to reconnect with a son taken away from her and given up for adoption.

    Phenomenal Philomena

    This was a great movie!!! I felt it...mainly anger at how she was treated, & sympathy for the unimaginable guilt she felt. I was shocked to discover it was a true story & only hope it helps others find peace.

    The movie, based on a true story, kept me interested in finding how Philomena lost her child, and the outcome of not only if she finds her son, but also of how the journey bring the two characters together.

    Touching drama for men and their mothers.

    Realistic journey of life. Judi Dench's character moves on from the tragedy of her past only to realize how it has shaped her life to that current point. Determined to seek out the truth, she acquires the assistance of a bright and cynical author.

    WOW great movie and so sad

    The acting is top notch. The story and the developing plot-line grabs you and tugs at all your emotions. The fact that it is a true story and these things happened frequently just rips you to pieces.

    Although I did enjoy the movie, I was slightly disappointed in it. I'm not sure why, though. The actors were fabulous, the story was funny & sad and very timely...but for some reason I was just left very unsatisfied by the whole.

    This movie suprised me. My family wanted to see this and I wasn't as enthused about watching, but it did pull me in. It was well acted and an interesting story. Judi Dench was fabulous as always as was Steve Coogan.
