Synopsis: A woman searches for her adult son, who taken away from her decades ago when she was forced to live in a convent.
Release Date: TBA 2013
Thoughts: Proving once again that there truly ain’t nothing like a Dame, Judi Dench (Skyfall, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel) better start picking out sparkly pantsuits for awards season because based on the new trailer for Philomena, she’s going to be pretty busy. This dramedy based on a novel by Martin Sixsmith comes from director Stephen Frears (The Grifters, The Queen) and screenwriter/star Steve Coogan (Despicable Me 2). The role seems right up Dench’s alley with equal parts dry comedy and human drama, a perfect release for late in 2013.
