Based on a true story set in Ireland in 1952, Philomena, an unmarried teenager, becomes pregnant and is sent to a Catholic church institution. The Magdalene Laundry is run by nuns who subsequently sell the babies and toddlers to rich families. Philomena (Dame Judi Dench) spends 50 years searching in vain for her son until she meets a journalist (Steve Coogan), who helps her uncover the truth.
Hinweis Course in English. There will be initial preparation work before the film (screened in English with English subtitles) and a post film discussion.
