I think Philomena ended up doing more things right than wrong, and knew I was seeing something so clearly made for prestige, but goddammit the movie ended up touching me. There’s a sweetness and purity to Philomena Lee (Judi Dench), she may not be a worldly woman, but she’s a good one. And to watch her struggle with her religious convictions, to see the foundations of her faith shaken, is to w... read more

A virtuous circle for Philmena and his forced journalist friend. They found Phil's son in the graveyard of the convent where the research begins. Frears doesn´t judge anybody, he lets the journalista make the judgment and Phil the forgiveness.

The movie was adapted from a book called 'The Lost Child of Philomena Lee' which was based on the true story of an Irish woman. The movie chronicles the story of Philomena's quest in search of her long lost son which travels all the way across the ocean to different countries. And again this incredible story ended in the hands of a great director. The director Stephen Fears just put some magic spe... read more

" "Its funny isn't it? All the pieces of paper designed to help you find him have been destroyed, but guess what, the one piece of paper designed to stop you finding him has been lovingly preserved. God and his infinite wisdom decided to spare that from the flames."

“well so i see philomena and i think is good and I think it's a solid drama

a great acting by judi dench and steve coogan good directing and great music by alexandre desplat I leave with the desire to read the book but realistically never finish it

one thing that I liked besides well adapted it's in itself it makes me feel like it's an original story

the music is good but there is something bad

I did not feel it in the whole movie and you have to listen to it after the movie

I think it was a nice experience in itself and recommended

"First viewing - Aug. 11th This was among the recommendations for last year's Netflix project, so I want to give a shout out to VierasTalo for recommending it. I enjoyed this more than I expected to, mainly because of the interactions between the two leads. The story is fairly simple yet I enjoyed the ways it played out plus that it's based on true events. I didn't think it was great, but I'd be willing to watch it again at some point. Currently streaming on Netflix"
