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.
