Movie Review: 'Philomena' (2013)

The first word that comes to mind when describing “Philomena” is that it is curious. It’s a drama with awkward moments of comedy, a road trip movie without much car travel and juxtaposed characters whose conflict never reaches any clear resolution.

Based on a true story, the film tells of the titular Philomena Lee (Judi Dench) as she implores journalist Martin Sixsmith (Steve Coogan) to find the son she had to give up for adoption 50 years ago, when she was a teenager stranded by her father at a convent in Ireland.

Movie Review: 'About Time' (2013) Is A Life Love Story

Time is such a precious thing, an all-encompassing unit of every person’s life. We are all blessed with it, capable of using it various ways and always dealing with how we have chosen to spend it. Battling regrets and wondering what we would do with a second chance, all the while managing the fact we only have so much time, to begin with.

These are heavy thoughts and “About Time” explores them without depressingly sorrow pauses. It's a coming of age story about what happens after you come of age.
