Charisse has alerted me to another free screening for us to view. I am a huge Judi Dench fan and I've never seen anything she was in that I didn't like. This movie is based on a true story and sounds very compelling. I'm even willing to get up early on a Saturday morning to see it. Use the link below to order your tickets.
Please post if you have an extra ticket to share with another member.
After the movie we can have lunch at one of the West End restaurants.
Synopsis: 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 (Dench), 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 (Coogan), a BBC reporter with whom she decides to discover her long-lost son.
