Grant and I went out on a date
Back row of the cinema, if you please.
(There's life in the old dogs yet!).
Anyway, what was the film we watched?
starring Judi Dench (UK's unofficial national treasure)
and Steve Coogan (aka Alan Partridge)
as the two main characters.
Well, what a super film.
Based on a true story (sadly)
the film follows two mismatched people
on a journey of discovery.
Totally heart rending, surprisingly funny
(there are some superbly brilliant lines
delivered by both actors)
and mesmerising, there is no CGI (thank
goodness), just a story about people,
relationships, justice and injustice.
It's much more moving than the film
poster (above) would indicate.
On my very subjective 'Joanna Scale'
I award 'Philomena' 10 out of 10.
