Spirit Lights The Way
shares the story of a young unmarried pregnant girl who, after being sent in disgrace to a convent by her father, agrees to put her son up for adoption.
Fifty years later, after seeking help from recalcitrant nuns to find her grown son, Philomena (played by Judi Dench) enlists the aid of a journalist (Steve Coogan) to help her track him down.
This touching comedic film, based on a true story, is not a documentary ~ it takes dramatic license and liberties in depicting historical events.
The creative blending of fact and fiction enhances the story line, allowing us to see how Philomena reconciles the nuns’ apparent lack of compassion without losing her deep and abiding faith.
Judi Dench reveals the amazing power of forgiveness to transform and heal.
Aah . . . that’s better!
