    I was a bit disappointed that Steve Coogan’s character didn’t have much of an arc, they touched on his lack of faith but they really didn’t do much with it. Good Film though.

      I disagree about that. I think he has a well-defined arc from cynic to believer (in people, not God).

        To me he went from apathetic to vitriolic, he seemed to be on a different page to Philomena to the very end. I guess i was hoping for a more emotional journey considering how much of a cynic he was at the beginning.

          It’s hard to continue this without spoilers but what he sees Philomena do at the and and what he says to her outside the convent make it hard for me to see it from your point of view.

    Well it’s a really wonderful movie but I don’t think it tells the audience what to think. It presents these really complicated issues and allows you to draw your own conclusions. For me as one of the characters in it, I think about what he does and the moral implications but I don’t think the movie says one way or the other.
