Rooftop Film Club: Philomena
All hail Judi Dench in this poignant film
Clamber up Peckham’s Bussey Building for the Rooftop Film Club. Tonight Steve Coogan and Judi Dench handle Philomena’s heart-wrenching moments with a light touch and wonderful chemistry. Based on an investigative book by BBC correspondent Martin Sixsmith, the movie tells the tale of Philomena Lee and her search for her son, given away for adoption without her knowledge. General admission. Over 18s only.
"It's Dench, showing how faith and hellraising can reside in the same woman, who makes Philomena moving and memorable."
