Review: Philomena

21 Apr 15

A class act...

And a true story worth telling well. Judi Dench hits the mark with her character perfectly, and both leads generate a good balance of humour and pathos.
Steve Coogan shows he's capable of delivering restraint and nuance in both acting and his role as co-writer, and gives a fine performance too. - One that could be considered diametrically opposed to that of his duel contributing roles in Alan Partridge Alpha Papa.
