[Upcoming Movie] Philomena

GSC Movies will be releasing the heart-warming drama “Philomena” this coming 20th February 2014.

Based on the book “The Lost Child of Philomena Lee” by Martin Sixsmith, the film tells the true story of Philomena Lee's 50-year-long search for her son. The book focuses more, as the title suggests, on the life Michael/Anthony had after his adoption.

Philomena won Best Screenplay at the 70th Venice International Film Festival and was nominated for four Academy Awards (86th Academy Awards), including for Best Picture, and Judi Dench (who plays Philomena) for Best Actress, and was also nominated for four BAFTA Awards (67th BAFTA Awards) and three Golden Globes (71st Golden Globe Awards).

Release date:
20 February 2014

Stephen Frears

Judi Dench, Steve Coogan, Sophie Kennedy Clark

When former journalist Martin Sixsmith was dismissed from the Labour Party in disgrace, he was at a loss as to what do. That changes when a young Irish woman approaches him about a story of her mother, Philomena, who had her son taken away when she was a teenage inmate of a Catholic convent. Martin arranges a magazine assignment about her search for him that eventually leads to America. Along the way, Martin and Philomena discover as much about each other as about her son's fate. Furthermore, both find their fundamental beliefs challenged.
