As a welcome gift, Ranjan treated me to the film Philomena earlier this evening.

Wisewebwoman had written about this film some time ago and I had informed her that I would see the film at the earliest opportunity. Even otherwise, the stories of women sent into slave labour into convents and children taken away from them in Ireland have made their way to our shores as well and seeing this film was a stunning experience.

It is a simple tale told in simple terms with some fantastic acting and direction. The two main characters Philomena and Martin have been portrayed very effectively by Judi Dench and Steve Coogan.

It was nice seeing a British film after a long time!
