On Monday, February 24th at 7 and 7:10PM, we have the chance to ask some very serious questions.

Philomena is an acting  tour de force by Judi Dench (Skyfall, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel), and is funny, serious and bittersweet as it looks at questions of our lives and relationships.

As a young girl, Philomena (Dench) was shamed into giving up her child whilst she worked in an Irish convent, an act that shadowed the rest of her life. Ultimately, she decides to try to find the grown child, and enlists the aid of the  recently unemployed and disgraced writer Martin (Steve Coogan).

We accompany them as they progress on their journey of discovery, only to find that the questions they have are our questions, while the answers are as individual as those being asked. The lessons imparted here have comedic moments, surprising twists, and a surprise ending, all masterfully shepherded by Dench, Coogan and director Richard Frears.
