Frozen (2013)

My 2-year old daughter loves this movie and has taken to singing Let It Go with the movie and on her own.  The first time I watched it, it didn't quite take with me but before long it grew on me and now I love it.

Philomena... 2013

Starring Judi Dench and Steve Coogan.. and directed by Stephen Frears..

Exceptional and very moving film..

As a teenager In Ireland, Philomena Lee was banished to a convent for the 'sin' of having a baby out of wedlock and forced to give him up.. The baby was then sold by the Nuns for adoption to an American family..The film details her search for her son 50 years later...
I dont want to say to much so as not to spoil the story.. but its an incredible one and true...

5/5

Judi Dench is amazing in the title roll as is Steve Coogan as the journalist who tries to help her track down her son..Coogan also co wrote the script..
After watching the film I did some research into the story and that of many others and was left horrified by what what I found...

^ Nice review. :)

We had a few posts about Philomena in the 2013 Films thread last winter:



A fantastic film! Judi Dench who I thought had retired from acting due to her eyesight puts in a brilliant performance as Philomena Lee, an elderly Irish woman who after 50 years confesses to her daughter that as a young single woman in the 1950's she had a child out of wedlock and the child was taken from her and  was bought by an American couple and brought up in the USA.

Steve Coogan(who also cowrote the screenplay) plays former journalist Martin Sixsmith who helps Philomena and track down her son.

Very well made based on fact drama. The poster is a little misleading as it isn't a comedy. Yes, there are some funny moments but on the whole, I'd say it's a drama.

4/5.



By a coincidence, I just saw this film also, on the recommendation of several friends. I agree with your assessment, very well done all around.

There was an earlier film that dealt with some of the same material ... The Magdalene Sisters. Maybe I'll try to catch up with that one also.

I saw this too! I thought Judi Dench's performance was the best thing about the film. She is always so good.

Thanks KC.... Nice to see others agree and enjoyed the film...
I've been quite a fan of Coogan's for some time now...and co writer Jeff Pope also penned the screenplay for another
Very good fact based drama.... pierrepoint .. About the life of Albert Pierrepoint. Britain's most prominent hangman...

Oh, I saw that one ... It was well done, also, and starred our old friend from White Hunter, Black Heart, Timothy Spall, Think it might have been called The Last Hangman in the US.

"Secrets and Lies", Mike Leigh, 1996

One of the Cannes Palme d'Or I love to watch once a year.

Amazing Brenda Blethyn and Marianne Jean-Baptiste.

Silly,cold war era film but John Wayne and Janet Leigh were good enough to make this film entertaining enough  ;)

Very cool!  O0

I watched the first 2 not too long ago.  Always love the first one, still hate the second one.  I haven't seen the third in quite some time but I enjoyed it very much when it first came out.  Christopher Lloyd shows up in the trailer for 8 Million Ways To Die In The West, but not sure if he's in the movie.  It was a funny bit, where Seth McFarlane opens up huge barn doors only to discover Lloyd as Doc covering up the Delorean.  "What's that?", he asks.  "Uh, weather experiment!" is Doc's reply.  It was a funny bit and I got a kick out of it.
