A world-weary political journalist picks up the story of a woman’s search for her son, who was taken away from her decades ago after she became pregnant and was forced to live in a convent.
I knew this movie would make me cry but for whatever reason I wanted to watch it. Possibly because I was hoping for a very sappy happy ending. I did not get that ending, but oh well. It was still a sweet movie, though it could potentially make you hate nuns.
Seriously, having not been raised catholic I’ve formed the opinion, based on this movie, nuns suck.
Anyway, I could never do what Philomena did in the end and the fact that she seemed genuine in her decision is mind boggling.
