The brief synopsis for ‘Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb’ is as follows: Get ready for the wildest and most adventure-filled Night At the Museum ever as Larry (Ben Stiller) spans the globe, uniting favorite and new characters while embarking on an epic quest to save the magic before it is gone forever.
Falling pregnant as a teenager in Ireland in 1952, Philomena (Judi Dench) was sent to the convent of Roscrea to be looked after as a “fallen woman”. When her baby was only a toddler, he was taken away by the nuns for adoption in America. Philomena spent the next fifty years searching for him but with no success. Then she met Martin Sixsmith (Steve Coogan), a world-weary political journalist who happened to be intrigued by her story. Together they set off to America on a journey that would not only reveal the extraordinary story of Philomena’s son, but also create an unexpectedly close bond between Philomena and Martin. The film is a compelling narrative of human love and loss that ultimately celebrates life, showing that there is laughter even in the darkest places. Sixsmith’s book “The Lost Child Of Philomena Lee” was published in 2009. It acted as a catalyst for thousands of adopted Irish children and their ‘shamed’ mothers to come forward to tell their stories. Many are still searching for their lost families. Out now in the UK, Stephen Frears’ ’Philomena’ opens in limited release on November 22nd and wide on November 27th in the US.
Martin and Philomena go on a journey together and get to know each other slowly. Was it similar for you and Steve after that first meeting and, if so, what did you learn about each other?
Judi Dench: I tell you what I learned about Steve, now he does stand-up and comedy and I do “serious” acting (laughs). I think he should stick to that because he seemed to seamlessly pass over into serious acting, when I could no more get up and tell a joke to a lot of people in a room than I could actually fly on my own to the moon (laughs). So, that’s what I learned: that some people can do it all! He’s in the Billy Connolly league. But Steve made me laugh every single day of the shoot. He made me laugh so hard, there were times my makeup had to be cleaned up because I laughed so much at him. He’s the most wonderful mimic.
And Martin is a bit lost. He’s quite unsure and he doesn’t know what he’s taken on, I think. But the journey they make together changes them both really and brings them very close. In a way she goes to find a son, but she finds, in a way, she finds the relationship of that of a mother and son with Martin Sixsmith. I do love how their relationship changes and develops.
