Judi Dench and Steve Coogan play unlikely friends in Philomena (12A), the latest offering at the Reel cinema in Grantham.
The film is the moving, funny and at times shocking true story of a woman’s search for her lost son.
It is a British drama directed by veteran English film-maker Stephen Frear who also directed The Queen.
Also showing at the Reel over the next week is Thor: The Dark World (12A). The sequel tells the story of Thor’s fight to restore order across the cosmos, but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save the world.
The Reel is also showing Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2 (U) throughout the week and Turbo (U) over the weekend.
