Philomena (2013). Running time 98 minutes. PG 13.
Drama based on Martin Sixsmith’s 2009 book The Lost Child Of Philomena Lee.
Starring Judi Dench and Steve Coogan.
Director Stephen Frears.
Judi Dench plays an Irishwoman who became pregnant when she was only 18, and was sent to a convent for fallen women, in Roscrea, Co. Tipperary. There, between long, punishing stints in the laundry, she was allowed to play a part in raising her son, Anthony.
But when he was three he was taken from her and adopted by an American couple, in return for £1,000, which was duly, egregiously, pocketed by the Church.
Fifty years pass, and Philomena settles in England, the secret tightly knotted in her heart until eventually she shares it with her grown-up daughter (Anna Maxwell Martin) and then with former BBC journalist Martin Sixsmith (Steve Coogan), who is nursing his wounds after being sacked from his job as a government spin doctor.
