[PHILOMENA] Female Lead - African-American, 25-35, 'Plus-Sized', w/Soulful BELTING Singing Voice. The role requires extreme emotional range, and also comedic-flair; the character is 'plus-sized' (think Queen Latifah, Mo'Nique, Nikki Blonsky, Jennifer Hudson, America Ferrera, Gabourey Sidibe, et al.); the role also requires a SOULFUL/BELTING singing voice (think Jennifer Holiday/Hudson, Lauryn Hill, Fantasia Barrino/Frenchie Davis, Patti LaBelle, Chaka Khan, Rihanna, et al.); Philomena is the kindest most loving/caring person you'll ever meet, BUT don't f--k with her (or worse yet, her friends) 'cause her ex-gangbanger (Bloods) rage may emerge (she can most definitely kick even the most 'rough-neck' man's a--).
LogLine: She saved his life... now she's gotta kill him.
