Review Roundup – Actresses Looking for Oscars

Philomena (2013)

Another couple reviews hosted on other websites, each for a film whose leading ladies are likely to be nominated for Academy Awards soon enough:

August: Osage County, a film with a great cast and screenplay that never really come together to create a great film.

Philomena, anchored by an excellent performance from Judi Dench but with an emotional core muddled by an inconsistent approach.

August: Osage County Rating:
3 starsPhilomena
Rating:
2.5 stars

  1. Haven’t Osage County yet. Will when it’s released around me. We’ll see if I agree then. 😉

    I liked Philomena considerably more than you, but I agree with some of the flaws you observe all the same.

    Good reviews!
