About the Film

Falling pregnant as a teenager in Ireland in 1952, Philomena was sent to the convent of Roscrea to be looked after as a “fallen woman”. When her baby was only a toddler, he was taken away by the nuns for adoption in America. Philomena spent the next fifty years searching for him but with no success.Then she met Martin Sixsmith, a world-weary political journalist who happened to be intrigued by her story. Together they set off to America on a journey that would not only reveal the extraordinary story of Philomena’s son, but also create an unexpectedly close bond between Philomena and Martin.The film is a compelling narrative of human love and loss that ultimately celebrates life, showing that there is laughter even in the darkest places.

Exceptional acting and brilliant production

5 stars

I saw this at the cinema yesterday, i can honestly say this film is one the best I have ever seen. And I've seen a lot of films. Judi Dench's performance was completely outstanding, she deserves an Oscar. Coogan was fantastic also.

Great

Why this film is called a comedy ? It's far from a comedy , in fact very sad . I would love to see it again, so good.
