Philomena Rated PG13

Philomena PG13 PT95M


Based on the 2009 investigative book by BBC correspondent Martin Sixsmith, The Lost Child of Philomena Lee, PHILOMENA focuses on the efforts of Philomena Lee (Dench), mother to a boy conceived out of wedlock -- something her Irish-Catholic community didn't have the highest opinion of -- and given away for adoption in the United States. In following church doctrine, she was forced to sign a contract that wouldn't allow for any sort of inquiry into the son's whereabouts. After starting a family years later in England and, for the most part, moving on with her life, Lee meets Sixsmith (Coogan), a BBC reporter with whom she decides to discover her long-lost son.

    I know I'm going extremely late in saying this but #Philomena is an EXTRAORDINARY movie!

  • @LarryMort

    Do we object to bias when no injury yet? eg movie Philomena which needlessly stigmatizes Catholic church and workers

  • @montysnrub

    I love the Dame but can we use movie magic to have @RobBrydon play #Philomena ?

    Found #Philomena from #Netflix. What a heartbreaking story, truly a must see movie. Judi Dench was wonderful.
