Philomena

Thursday, April 24

Rated PG-13

 


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, 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 , a BBC reporter with whom she decides to discover her long-lost son. (c) Weinstein

“At its core, this clever, wrenching, profound story underscores the tenacity of faith in the face of unfathomable cruelty.” Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
