Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Philomena [DVD] (DVD)
After seeing all the 5 star rating on the cover you would expect an outstanding movie. Judy Dench is obviously the star of the movie and Steve Coogan is good, but not that great and it feels like he is doing his average best not to do a mild Alan Partridge impersonation. There are a few moments of swearing (from Steve) which doesn't quite work in the movie. The story itself is good but heavily relies on flashbacks and sadly some of the characters are very much the stereotypical one you would imagine that might be - no real depth except to Judy Dench's character.
