We first wrote about this movie earlier this month, and showed a lovely clip where the title character, Philomena, played by Dame Judi Dench, discovers her long lost son was gay. See that scene here
All of our lucky GuySpy guys in the UK have had a few weeks to see the film and rave reviews are appearing everywhere, but for our US friends, the film opens this upcoming long weekend.
Get ready to see Philomena with our weekly give-a-way!
The Weinstein Company presents:
Philomena, in theaters this THANKSGIVING.
Based on the incredible true story.
The highly acclaimed new comedy from director Stephen Frears.
Starring Dame Judi Dench and Steve Coogan.
Based on the 2009 investigative book by BBC correspondent Martin Sixsmith, The Lost Child of Philomena Lee, PHILOMENA focuses on the efforts of Philomena Lee (Judi Dench), mother to a boy conceived out of wedlock — something her Irish-Catholic community didn’t have the highest opinion of — and given away for adoption in the United States. In following church doctrine, she was forced to sign a contract that wouldn’t allow for any sort of inquiry into the son’s whereabouts. After starting a family years later in England and, for the most part, moving on with her life, Lee meets Sixsmith (Steve Coogan), a BBC reporter with whom she decides to discover her long-lost son.
Philomena is now playing in New York and Los Angeles and opens in theaters nationwide November 27. Check your local listings for more information.
