Philomena

2013 –

Harvey Weinstein was in to plug August: Osage County and Philomena. He said Philomena is a true story about an 80-year old woman who had gotten pregnant as a teenager. Her father had sent her away to a convent, and the nuns ended up stealing the baby and selling it to the highest bidder while telling the woman that her baby had died.  She hires a reporter to track the child down.  Harvey says it’s not a sad story, he says it’s really great.

Just finished watching #Philomena w/my better half. Sweet film, very well done. Dench & Coogan are great. Very compelling story.
