Shoppers who attend the 8 December market at the Kingston City Hall in Moorabbin will receive a free* 2for1 film pass to see Philomena – starring Judi Dench & Steve Coogan.
Philomena is the true story of one mother’s search for her lost son. Falling pregnant as a teenager in Ireland in 1952, Philomena Lee was sent to the convent of Roscrea to be looked after as a “fallen woman”. When her baby was only a toddler, he was taken away by the nuns for adoption in America. After fifty years searching for him in vain, Philomena (Judi Dench) meets Martin Sixsmith (Steve Coogan), a world-weary journalist as cynical as Philomena is trusting.
Together they embark on a journey of discovery, revealing the extraordinary life of Philomena’s son. Warm, witty and compassionate, and featuring a powerhouse performance from Judi Dench, Philomena is not to be missed.
It’s in cinemas Boxing Day. See the trailer here. Big thanks to Hopscotch Films for the freebies!
