Description When former journalist Martin Sixsmith is dismissed from the Labour Party in disgrace, he is 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 basic beliefs challenged.

    Well Wikipedia says that he wasn't adopted, so it doesn't look like he's going to turn out to be her son.

    alot of the lines are punch lines but the music is for a heart felt drama. not saying its not a heart felt drama. The music mixed with the jokes just threw me off

    For someone as well spoken as yourself, I am truly shocked that you have no interest in this movie.
  • Solomon Chen 2013-08-09 17:39:13
    I'm going to hazard a guess, and say the interviewer turns about to be the son.
  • sabranio 2013-08-09 17:32:49
