Next Performance 25 March


In this beautifully sad true story, BBC journalist Martin Sixsmith (Steve Coogan) reaches out to Philomena Lee (Dame Judi Dench) to help her in her mission to find her son, fifty years after he was taken away from her when she was sent to a home for 'fallen women' run by nuns. The two leads are utterly sublime, and their chemistry is the crux of the film.
