After losing his job as a spin doctor, Martin Sixsmith (Coogan) decides to return to journalism. His subject is Philomena Lee (Judi Dench), an Irishwoman who, as a teenager, had a child that she gave up. Together, they set out to find him.
A terrific, sophisticated comedy that tackles serious issues with a lightness of touch and a spirit of steel, Philomena is the British film to beat come BAFTA time.
