Written and staring Steve Coogan, Philomena is based on a true story of Martin Sixsmith, a world weary journalist recently sacked by the Labour Party and in need of work. He picks up the story of a woman in search of her son who was taken from her decades ago after she got pregnant, was unmarried and forced into a convent.
