Philomena ★★★★

The eighth Best Picture Oscar nominated film that I have seen...that only leaves Her to watch. Judi Dench plays Philomena, a woman who has been searching for her son, who was taken away from her decades ago after she became pregnant and was forced to live in a convent. Steve Coogan plays an unemployed writer who helps Philomena search for her son. Dench is awesome....but the really surprise is how awesome Coogan is in this role. Coogan did not get an Oscar acting nomination...but did pick up a producing and writing nomination for this movie. Philomena is a character you will not soon forget....and this movie lets her story be told. Check this one out!

The 132nd major release of 2013 that I have watched. Ranked 31st out of 156 movies on my Top Films of 2013 Cogerson Movie Score table.
