Philomena DVD 1Disc
Philomena is the true story of one mother's search for her lost son.
Falling pregnant as a teenager in Ireland in 1952, Philomena Lee was sent to the convent of Roscrea to be looked after as a “fallen woman”.
When her baby was only a toddler, he was whisked away by the nuns to America for adoption. Philomena (Judi Dench) spent the next fifty years searching for him in vain. Then she met Martin Sixsmith, a world-weary journalist as cynical as Philomena was trusting.
Together they set off for America on a journey that would not only reveal the extraordinary story of Philomena's son, but also the powerful bond that grew between Philomena and Martin.
