“Philomena” Will Make You Laugh & Cry

I finally got around to seeing the Oscar-nominated British film, “Philomena”, last weekend and it was incredible.

PHILOMENA

The movie is based on a real-life story of Philomena Lee, a teenager who becomes pregnant and is sent off to an Abbey in Ireland by her father to have the child.  After bonding with the little boy, Anthony, for a few years, he is adopted by an American family.

Lee, played with perfection by Judi Dench, who earned a Best Actress nomination at this year’s Oscars, waits 50 years before sharing her daily torment with her grown daughter.  The daughter just happens to meet a reporter who helps Philomena find her son.

“Philomena” will make you laugh and cry.  It’s a must see.

GRADE:  A+

And, here is the real Philomena Lee with her daughter, Jane, in 2013.
