Dame Judi Dench starred in the film Philomena, which was based on this book Lost Child of Philomena Lee, written by Martin Sixsmith, played by Steve Coogan.
The story tells of a young Irish girl in the family way, who is whisked away to a home run by nuns. After the birth, the nuns arrange for Philomena’s son to be adopted, and he is taken away without the chance of saying goodbye. Keeping silent for 50 years, Philomena decides to look for her son with the help of Martin, who still has connections in America. Fate takes a strange turn in this moving and poignant story.
