Watch Philomena (2013) Online
Philomena recounts the true story of Philomena Lee (Judi Dench), a Catholic woman who gives birth out of wedlock in 1950s Ireland. Abandoned by her family who consider her to have sinned, she is forced to live in an abbey, where the nuns sell her infant child for adoption. Philomena keeps her secret for fifty years, before eventually enlisting the help of jaded journalist Martin Sixsmith (Steve Coogan) in tracking down her estranged son. As heartwarming as it is heartbreaking, Coogan - who co-writes - finds unexpectedly funny moments amid the tragedy.
