The title character of Stephen Frears' Philomena is played by Judi Dench. She is an elderly Irish woman who, as a teenager, gave birth while she was working at a convent. The Catholic Church had the child adopted, and now, decades later, Philomena is introduced to Martin Sixsmith (Steve Coogan), onetime government spokesperson who is now working as a freelance journalist. Martin agrees to help Philomena look for her son, and the trail takes them to the United States, and brings them face-to-face with some long-buried secrets. All the while, the type-A Martin and the ceaselessly charming Philomena learn to trust each other. Philomena screened at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival.

I loved every minute of it. Humor + Serious! I may order the DVD as I could watch it many more times. Judie Dench is a great actress !

Brilliant and Charming I loved this movie. Great script. Very well acted - not surprising considering Judie Dench and Steve Cougan. Excellent production values. Kept me engrossed the whole time. Never once considered using the fast forward button. I could watch this movie again and again. Enough said.
