PHILOMENA – Enter to Win the DVD and Book!

Philomena was one of the surprises of the year, earning four oscar nominations, including Best Picture, and Best Lead Actress. Now, you can own the drama on Blu-Ray and DVD, and we are giving away a free copy of the movie, as well as the book that inspired the film! Not only that, but both the movie and the book will be signed by Philomena herself!

SummaryJudi Dench stars in the story of Philomena Lee, mother to a boy conceived out of wedlock and given up for adoption.  Nearly 50 years later, Philomena meets Martin Sixsmith (Steve Coogan), a former BBC reporter looking for his next big story.  Together, they embark on a journey to locate her long lost son.  As the pieces of the puzzle come together, the unlikely travel companions form a comic and heartwarming friendship.  Based on the 2009 investigative book by Martin Sixsmith ‘The Lost Child of Philomena Lee’, the film adaptation has been hailed as “a triumph for Judi Dench.  Brilliant.  A performance of grace, nuance and cinematic heroism.” (Mary Corliss, TIME MAGAZINE)
