Movies in a Minute: Philomena

Fifty years a go, Philomena got pregnant while in the convent.

Much to her dismay, the nuns forced her to give up her son for adoption. The son moved around with his new family and eventually Philomena loses track of where he was.

Jumping to the present day, she meets a reporter doing a human interest story and the two of them go on an adventure to find her son.

This movie is based on a true story and I loved it. I could watch Dame Judi Dench read a phone book and I think it'd be interesting but this film has real-life twists and turns. I really think this is one you'll want to see.

About the Author

I may not be a native, but I've been in Arizona long enough to forget what it's like back East. I moved to Tucson in the 5th grade where I graduated high school and attended the UofA. The radio bug hit me early and I was a DJ at the age of 17 in Tucson. Besides being on-air at times, my main career focus has been the behind-the-scenes programming of radio stations. I have an extensive background in music radio, in addition to working at and/or running some of the biggest and most influential radio stations in America. My radio career took me to Los Angeles, San Diego and then back to Phoenix. The chance to be back on-air, and to do it at 92.3 KTAR, was too good to pass upů so here we are! Weekends are usually reserved for racing as I own and drive my own dirt track Sprint Car all over the country. I am unmarried (never have been), childless (that I'm aware of) and don't even have any pets at this point. I do own 1 plant but the fact it has survived this long without watering leads me to believe it may be plastic. I love what I do and enjoy hosting a talk radio show for people who don't like "talk radio".
