The hilarious and heartbreaking Philomena, about an elderly Irish woman’s search for the son who was adopted against her will by the Catholic church, is finally out on DVD, Blu-Ray, VOD, and Pay Per View.
Based on true events, the film was nominated for four Oscars: Best Picture, Best Actress for Dench, Best Adapted Screenplay for co-star Steve Coogan and Jeff Pope, and Best Original Score for Alexander Desplat.
In honor of Dench’s masterful performance, Women and Hollywood will choose three winners to win a copy of the DVD.
To participate, name your favorite Judi Dench movie and performance and explain why in the comments below by Thursday, April 17th at 12 PM EST. Please do not send emails, as they will not be considered.
The first-place winner will receive a signed DVD and a copy of journalist Martin Sixsmith’s book, on which the film is based. (Coogan’s character is based on Sixsmith.) Second- and third-place winners will receive a DVD or Blu-Ray (depending on their preference) and the book as well.
We’ll run the winners’ answers in a future post. FYI – This contest is available to U.S. residents only.
Note: Please comment with the email address you want to be contacted at if you are chosen as the winner.
