Christopher Kelly Modern Cinema - Monthly Series
Nov 21, 2013

In a career-crowning, sure-to-be-Oscar-nominated performance, Dame Judi Dench plays an Irish woman who teams with an unemployed journalist (Steve Coogan) to search for the son she was forced to give up for adoption a half-century earlier. Directed by the great Stephen Frears (Dangerous Liaisons, The Queen), Philomena moves effortlessly from comedy to heartbreak and back again; and the based-on-a-true-story screenplay (by Coogan and Jeff Pope) poses rich, complicated questions about religious, class and the nature of forgiveness.

Terry Haggerty draws on the vocabulary of abstract art to create his illusory paintings and large-scale wall works. The artist’s central motif is created by painting patterned lines that alternate a light and dark color, such as white and blue. When juxtaposed, these colors play off of each other, appearing to advance and recede (as seen in Kinetic Friction, 2009).
