BRIDGESTONE AWARD "Best in Ireland 2011, 2012 and 2013.
The story of Philomena Lee’s search for her son following her incarceration at a Magdelene laundry has now attained legendary status in Ireland and abroad.
Speaking for the thousands of parents and children who suffered at the hands of a cruel clerical system ‘Philomena’ is the poignant story of a woman’s search for her lost child. Set against the backdrop of a rapidly changing world, Philomena’s Irish manerisms are offset against her cynical travelling companion, BBC journalist Martin Sixsmith.
