PHILOMENA ~ staring Judi Dench, Steve Coogan, Simone Lahbib
Based on the 2009 investigative book by BBC correspondent Martin Sixsmith, The Lost Child of Philomena Lee, PHILOMENA focuses on the efforts of Philomena Lee, mother to a boy conceived out of wedlock - something her Irish-Catholic community didn't have the highest opinion of - and given away for adoption in the United States. In following church doctrine, she was forced to sign a contract that wouldn't allow for any sort of inquiry into the son's whereabouts. After starting a family years later in England and, for the most part, moving on with her life, Lee meets Sixsmith, a BBC reporter with whom she decides to discover her long-lost son.
We will meet at 4:00. The movie starts at 4:40 pm. Don't forget to purchase your ticket when you arrive. We will wait in the outer lobby where you purchase your ticket for about 10 minutes and then go in as a group. If you are late, just find a seat and meet us outside the theater after the movie.
After the movie we will gather at a nearby restaurant for some conversation and a bite to eat.
