See 'Philomena'­ at Broadway Cinema

Philomena 12A 

Director: Stephen Frears
Cast: Steve Coogan, Judi Dench
Origin: United Kingdom
Duration: 98m

In 1950s Ireland, Catholic authorities shamed thousands of "fallen" Irish women into giving their children up for adoption, with no hope of ever seeing them again. Decades after being forced to give up her newborn son, Philomena embarks on a search to find him with the aid of a BBC reporter. Showing us her softer side, Dame Judi Dench gives a tour-de-force performance as Philomena, one that is perfectly complemented by Steve Coogan as Sixsmith. While revealing some of the darkest deeds that the Catholic Church is capable of, Philomena also reminds us of one of its greatest virtues: forgiveness.


I've heard and read some interesting reviews of this film, so thought it would be worth a try. Judi Dench and Steve Coogan are always worth watching in my opinion!

Meet in the Cafe Bar on the ground floor of Broadway at 5.00. We can have a drink or something to eat before the film starts at 5.45, in screen 2.

Tickets are available from the Broadway box office, or online here...

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
