…And Another of Our Favorites
Philomena! Without a doubt, your Two Chums appreciated this movie – this movie depicting another true story, this time about Philomena Lee, an Irish girl who found herself pregnant, out of wedlock, at a time when this was certainly “not done”.
If you have not had an opportunity to see this film, please do. Obviously, I will not give you the whole story as you should see it for yourselves but suffice it to say that it is a powerful, poignant, joyous, sad, and ultimately heartwarming drama of a teenager who, rather innocently, gets pregnant and the suffering that ensues. It is based on the book”The Lost Child of Philomena Lee” which tells the story of the 50-year search for her child. Dame Judi Dench does a marvelous job as Philomena.
As a society, thank goodness, we have come a very long way since Philomena gave birth to her darling son in 1951.
Enjoy Sunday evening with the stars.. It will be great to see who the Academy deems worthy of that golden statue called “Oscar”!
PS Today marks the thirty-eighth wedding anniversary of my darling Chum, Robin, and her darling husband, Randy. What an amazing couple they make – such generosity and love I seldom see and feel. Happy Anniversary, Robin and Randy!
