Philomena Lee (Judi Dench), along with many other unwed women, was forced by Catholic authorities in 1950s Ireland to give up her child for adoption.
After 50 years of searching for her son without any luck, Philomena convinced a recently unemployed and unapologetically cynical journalist named Martin Sixsmith (Steve Coogan) to help her.
Based on the celebrated book by Martin Sixsmith.
