 What's Philomena  about?

Philomena - Poignant True Parenting Story

Kawartha Lakes Mums Examines Philomena 
Philomena, is based on Philomena: A Mother Her Son And A Fifty-Year Search a true story by Martin Sixsmith. From our research about the story, you may want to take several hankies with you to the movie.
Philomena: A Mother Her Son And A Fifty-Year Search
 Philomena is a poignant true story of a mother forced to give up her child at birth and the fifty year search by Philomena for her son.  Tragically, her son dies of AIDS, having been told by a nun that his mother abandoned him.
Who was Philomena's son? None other than Michael Hess, a top Washington lawyer and a leading Republican official in the Reagan and Bush administrations who had to hide his Gay life style.
The story shines a light on hypocrisy on both sides of the ocean in the secrets institutions were forced to keep. With a foreword by Judi Dench, Martin Sixsmith's book is a compelling and deeply moving narrative of human love and loss, both heartbreaking yet ultimately redemptive. Read the full synopsis of Philomena: A Mother Her Son And A Fifty-Year Search on Amazon Canada.
