I have seen two films of note recently. The first was 'Captain Phillips' a tale of modern piracy. Well filmed and acted, with Tom Hanks as the captain, the one flaw for me was the unnecessary repetition of 'seat 15' which was rather more than glaringly obvious. Worth a look.
The other was 'Philomena', a true story of yet another example of the Catholic Church's inhumanity, starring Judy Dench and Steve Coogan. Very moving.
