  • 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 (Dench), 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 (Coogan), a BBC reporter with whom she decides to discover her long-lost son.

    Very good movie! A mystery to be solved but each clue or mystery solved leads to more questions. Lots of reflection on beliefs and societal values.

    Very good movie. Really enjoyed and I think everyone else did, too. Judi Dench is a lock for best actress nominee. Nice dinner and conversation after. Thanks everyone!

    Just a reminder we meet right outside the theater where movie was shown to talk and decide dinner. Not in main lobby or outside. Parking has been crowded.

    hey there, I am planning on coming, but I'm working right up to the start, I should be off work by 4:15 and I work right around the corner. I don't have a pic up, so I'll be wearing a loud purple plaid jacket. If I don't make it before you all head in, where is the meeting point after the movie? Thanks, see you tomorrow!
