Philomena Blu-ray

Posted March 5, 2014 03:03 PM by Webmaster

Anchor Bay EntertainmentAnchor Bay Entertainment and The Weinstein Company have officially announced and detailed their upcoming Blu-ray release of acclaimed director Stephen Frears' latest project, Philomena (2013), starring Judi Dench, Steve Coogan, Charlie Murphy, Simone Lahbib, Sophie Kennedy Clark, and Charles Edwards. The release will be available for purchase online and in stores across the nation on April 15th.

Official synopsis: Based on the 2009 investigative book by BBC correspondent Martin Sixsmith, The Lost Child of Philomena Lee, this film focuses on the efforts of Philomena Lee (Dench), mother to a boy conceived out of wedlock something Philomena's Irish-Catholic community didn't have the highest opinion of and given away for adoption in the United States. Following church doctrine, she was forced to sign a contract that wouldn't allow for any sort of inquiry into her son's whereabouts. After starting a family years later in England and, for the most part, moving on with her life, Philomena meets Sixsmith (Coogan), a BBC reporter with whom she decides to track down her long-lost son.

Special Features:
  • Feature Commentary with Steve Coogan and Screenwriter Jeff Pope
  • A Conversation with Judi Dench (8m 48s)
  • The Real Philomena Lee (2m 41s)
  • Q&A with Steve Coogan (23m 18s)

Wonderful film! One of the year's best for sure.

And I don't know what you're talking about montyb. Maybe their catalog titles aren't amazing but I have no problem with the current films they release.

I can't believe it's going to take so long to release. I mean it played in theaters in November! Apart from "Her" it will be one of, or the last Best Picture nominee to get released. I'm just sad I won't get to watch it again sooner, this time with my mom, cause I really loved this movie, and she's just dying to see it. After "Gravity" and "Her", it was the film I would've wanted to win.

It always seems to be Weinstein who plays this waiting game like last year with Silver Linings Playbook. I was so livid when they changed the release date from Valentine's Day to April 30th.

There's an independent theater group in my area that owns a late-1940s single-screen theater. It's a great place to see a movie but unfortunately they seem to have dedicated it to showing only Baby Boomer movies--Philomena, Best Exotic Marigold, British period pieces, anything with Maggie Smith, Tom Wilkinson, Judi Dench, etc. It's not that they aren't good movies for some people, just that they're often so far down the list of movies I'd like to see.

Wonderful, underrated film. It never had a chance at Best Picture, but it was certainly among the best movies of 2013.

I saw it in a theater at the end of December, knowing very little of the story but knowing that the reviews on Rotten Tomatoes were simply glowing. To my great surprise, it's probably the most Christian movie I've seen come out of Hollywood in many years. (I have not seen The Bible miniseries, or Son of God.)
