PHILOMENA ( 2013, uk)

Post by Wallace on Tue May 27, 2014 10:26 pm

file under iniquities  perpetrated under the name of Jesus.

this is the true story of  a young, unwed woman taken into the notorious Magdelene Houses of Ireland, kept decades by the nuns as no better than an indentured slave (wot cannot get out unless 100 pounds is somehow come up with. )

They took the children from the mothers (with no rights) and sold them for 1000 pounds to wealthy Americans.

 50 years later Philomena Lee (Judy Dench) wants to know what became of her son. Journalist (Steve Coogan) takes her to America ,seeing as how the seculars in Ireland keep obsfucating and insist all records were burned in the 60s. (This vile practice existed for decades well into the sixties.)

She learns he died of aides but had been an important man serving both Reagan & Bush administration as advisor.
