Philomena trailer

by Matt Z

Philomena is the story of a woman looking for her son after he was taken from her as a child.  The movie is directed by Stephen Frears, who also directed High Fidelity and The Queen (both excellent movies).  Dame Judi Dench plays Philomena and the movie also stars Steve Coogan.  I find Coogan to be a hilarious comedic actor and if you haven't had the chance to check out Hamlet 2, you definitely should.
