Faith and Film Discussion: Philomena (2013)

Join us on Saturday, December 2 at 6:30pm for dinner as we watch and discuss Philomena.

In 1952, Irish teenager Philomena (Judi Dench) became pregnant out of wedlock and was sent to a convent. When her baby, Anthony, was a toddler, the nuns took Philomena’s child away from her and put him up for adoption in the United States. For the next 50 years, she searched tirelessly for her son. When former BBC correspondent Martin Sixsmith (Steve Coogan) learns of the story, he becomes her ally. They travel together to America to find Anthony and become unexpectedly close in the process.

Dinner is potluck style, with a main course of bangers and mash (sausages and potatoes). Childcare is available, and the children will watch A Muppet Christmas Carol and have their own discussion following their viewing.
