FREE MOVIE: "PHILOMENA"­ 2013 (PG-13) at the Point Loma Library

Dear Movie Going Friends,

FREE Event!

TUESDAY, April 29, 2014 we will watch the movie:

What: 
"PHILOMENA" 2013 (PG-13)
(Right click above and open in new tab or window for trailer) 

About The Film:
Philomena is the true story of one mother’s search for her lost son.

Falling pregnant as a teenager in Ireland in 1952, Philomena was sent to the convent of Roscrea to be looked after as a “fallen woman”. When her baby was only a toddler, he was taken away by the nuns for adoption in America. Philomena spent the next fifty years searching for him in vain.

Then she met Martin Sixsmith, a world-weary political journalist who happened to be intrigued by her story. Together they set off for America on a journey that would not only reveal the extraordinary story of Philomena’s son, but also create an unexpectedly close bond between them.

The film is a compelling narrative of human love and loss and ultimately celebrates life. It is both funny and sad and concerns two very different people, at different stages of their lives, who help each other and show that there is laughter even in the darkest places.

The book “The Lost Child Of Philomena Lee” was published in 2009. It acted as a catalyst for thousands of adopted Irish children and their ‘shamed’ mothers to come forward to tell their stories. Many are still searching for their lost families.

    We will be joining the Discount Movies and Events, San Diego MeetUp. So there will be plenty of MeetUp members to meet. Please be on time. If you are new to the group (or a regular), please come say hello before the movie. Look for me or the MeetUp sign on back of my chair.

    After the movie, if you are interested, we will meet right outside the auditorium to go to Pure Thai Restaurant across the street (Voltaire) from the library. See you tonight!
