Project Description



“So moving and yet also so funny at times with an Oscar-caliber performance from Judi Dench.” —

As the mother of a long-lost gay son who she gave up for adoption 50 years earlier, Judi Dench gives a tremendous performance in this powerful comedy-drama from director Stephen Frears. Now decades later, feisty Irishwoman Philomena is introduced to journalist Martin Sixsmith (Steve Coogan) who agrees to help Philomena look for her son. The trail takes them to the United States, and brings them face-to-face with long-buried secrets. All the while, the type-A Martin and the ceaselessly charming Philomena learn to trust each other.
