A discussion of the film Philomena will be held on Wednesday, May 21, at 7 p.m. in the library auditorium.
(Please note that the film will not be shown prior to the discussion. Copies are available in the A-V room.)
Judy Dench stars in the story of Philomena Lee who was forced to give up her son for adoption. After searching for him for nearly 50 years, Philomena meets Martin Sixsmith, a former BBC reporter (Steve Coogan) who is intrigued by her story. Together they embark on a journey that would not only reveal the extraordinary story of Philomena’s son, but also create a close bond between them. Nominated for Best Picture, the film was directed by Stephen Frears.
