The Happy Valley torrent reviews
(mx) wrote: A sensitive, quietly moving but often hilarious journey into a shocking past, Philomena is a superb film which, despite what many have claimed, is not a venomous attack on religion or its followers. It's a heart-warming tale of a woman who was separated from her child by the circumstances of the time, and her attempts to locate them. To make a film like this without being even a little critical of those responsible would not only be dishonest, but disrespectable. They deserve to be held accountable for what they did, but the film is rightfully more concerned with the journey of the titular character and what she learns along the way, not the hatred she fosters. Dench and Coogan are nothing short of fantastic, both giving layered performances and embodying their very real emotions. But the film never becomes maudlin or depressing, always maintaining a wry sense of humour and making you laugh when you least expect it. It's a true gem of a movie, touching without being cloying, hilarious without being flippant. Be sure not to miss it.

(it) wrote: A moving film. Simple as that. It is daringly realistic, particularly innovative in the way it portrays its subject matter, and wonderfully splendid in how the story wraps up with the characters you hate going one way and the characters you like going in the other. This film overtakes the big blockbusters of 1997 and easily beats them out.
