A clip from ' Philomena has finally hit the Interweb!
The / vehicle won glowing reviews at the Venice Film Festival and this first bittersweet clip gives us some insight into why the drama has been so hotly anticipated. It tells the true story of a disgraced political journalist (Coogan) who decides to help an older woman (Dench) find the son she was forced to give up for adoption decades ago when living in a convent in 1950s Ireland.
Clearly, the Weinstein company think just as highly of the tearjerking drama as the film critics – they've dated Philomena for a Christmas Day release in New York and LA, hitting the rest of the US on January 10th, so setting the film up for awards season.
Check out the clip below and let us know what you think – do Judi Dench and Steve Coogan work well together as a lead duo?
