Susy Gomes’s review published on Letterboxd:
Philomena is a film about a woman looking for her lost son who was taken from her when he was only a child.
It's a sweet, heartbreaking film with a really strong plot that talks about revolting true church matters which I found really sad but interesting, the love between a mother and her son and above all the need to find the truth.
I really liked the acting both from Steve Coogan and Judi Dench and I loved the music which I think suited really well the lead character's personality and her past.
I started watching this film not knowing much and I wasn't expecting something big but I wasn't disappointed, I liked it alot and I recommend it to anyone who feels curious to watch it.
