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. (c) Weinstein
a film with depth, tackling big issues while managing to be an immensely personal story at the same time.
