PHILOMENA

  • This location is shown only to members

  • 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.

    Carol (and others) Tuesdays I'm typically in Augusta but hoping that I'll get back early enough and I'll try to come.

    I have a friend who would like to see this movie. I am hoping she will come. I will speak with her tomorrow and let you know. I look forward to seeing this with a group.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
