Spoiler alert: Unless you know how this reunion between a mother who gave up her baby and the grown man she’s now searching for is going to turn out, do not watch this clip. Philomena‘s based on a true story however it’s not a story everyone knows, so it’s a bit surprising this clip is one that The Weinstein Company’s choosing to promote.
 
Starring Judi Dench and Steve Coogan, Philomena is opening in theaters on November 22, 2013.
 
The Plot:
 
Based on the 2009 investigative book by BBC correspondent Martin Sixsmith, The Lost Child of Philomena Lee, Philomena focuses on the efforts of Philomena Lee (Dench), mother to a boy conceived out of wedlock – something her Irish-Catholic community didn’t have the highest opinion of – and given away for adoption in the United States. In following church doctrine, she was forced to sign a contract that wouldn’t allow for any sort of inquiry into the son’s whereabouts. After starting a family years later in England and, for the most part, moving on with her life, Lee meets Sixsmith (Coogan), a BBC reporter with whom she decides to discover her long-lost son.
