Saw Philomena Last Night

If you go to see, bring tissues.  And come back here and share your thoughts with me. I am keeping to myself to avoid spoilers (sorry friends on my facebook) but would love to know your thoughts.

  1. Saw it yesterday and agree…it was excellent, intense, poignant and pretty accurate as to the way so many of us were treated. I only wish they had developed the story a bit further as to the culpability of the Catholic church and the entire adoption industry…. but this is certainly a good start in heightening awareness.

    I am such a Judy Dench fan anyway but she blew me away in the role of Philomena. I wish she would become a spokesman for this issue.

    • Thanks for your commentary Carol! As you know from my Facebook thread, I felt same. It did leave me feeling like something was lacking or missing or needed more time but as you suggest it is a complex topic. I do think it is fabulous this is getting mainstream media attention. Baby steps.
