Philomena

Though Steve Coogan (Tropic Thunder, Hamlet 2) has clearly shown that he's more accustomed to comedy on the big screen, supporting turns in films like Our Idiot Brother and The Look of Love show that he has some solid dramatic chops waiting to be stretched as well. Now he gets his chance with some good company in Judi Dench. In the first trailer for Philomena, a woman goes searching for the son she was forced to give up as a young girl, and navigates America to find him with the help of a former journalist. Coogan also co-wrote the screenplay based on Martin Sixsmith's book on this tragic real-life story. Watch!

Here's the UK trailer for Stephen Frears' Philomena from Pathe (via Empire):

Philomena Lee (Judi Dench) was sent away to a convent to be looked after as a "fallen woman". Taken from her at the age of 3, her son was "sold" in America. Forced to vow she would never seek him, Philomena fought her vow and spent the next 50 years searching for her lost son. With the help of journalist, Martin Sixsmith (Steve Coogan), Philomena travels to America to find her lost son. Philomena is directed by Stephen Frears (The Queen) and written by Jeff Pope and Steve Coogan, based on Martin Sixsmith's book The Lost Child of Philomena. Weinstein Company distributes the film in the US but there's no release date.

Catholics Church at their old tricks again, they loved a wee baby theft to themselves over in Ireland, how society went along with it, I'll never understand. This looks a good one!

Something about Judy Dench saying "clitoris" made me laugh. I love her as an actress.
