Dame Judie at her best!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Philomena (Amazon Video)
Based on a true story Dame Judie at her best .
We all know the hardships and the many unjust situations that happend in Ireland in the 50'/60's
The Magdalen Laundry and this story is one that is spawned by such a situation.
By now every one knows this story but what I liked about this was the main character's ability to accept and not to bash
her religion, and just find the truth. Which I have to say as one who shares her religion. made me angry and dismayed on finding the truth in the film.
Great movie enjoyed it thoroughly and if you have read any of my previous reviews you will know my wife is the gauge I set these genre of films on….In this case hers is "freeze the movie till I get back…Then I know she likes it!
The one reservation I have is Steve Coogan….comedian,,,,well maybe….actor,,,,,no. I kept waiting for him to come in with an Alan Partridge or whoever impersonation….But then again…he did produce/direct or have a hand it so..say no more.!
