Philomena

Philomena

Philomena is the true story of one mother's search for her lost son. Falling pregnant as a teenager in Ireland in 1952, Philomena Lee was sent to the convent of Roscrea to be looked after as a ‘fallen woman’. Her son was whisked away by the nuns to America for adoption. Philomena (Judi Dench) spent the next 50 years searching for him in vain. Then she met Martin Sixsmith, a world-weary journalist. Together they set off for America on a journey that would not only reveal the extraordinary story of Philomena's son, but also the powerful bond that grew between Philomena and Martin.
