Last week Philomena was re-released in the Portland area, mere days before the Academy Awards ceremony, to allow me to finally cure my afore mentioned Oscar fever. Steve Coogan plays a posh journalist embroiled in political scandal who turns to the dreaded “human interest” genre; his subject is Judi Dench, a simpleton whose baby was stolen from her by evil Irish nuns! As the yellow poster indicates, it’s a quirky indie movie — in this case, part buddy comedy, part tear jerker.  The actors carry it off flawlessly. Coogan also helped write the screenplay, so it’s got some great puns in it!  Worth checking out.
