Summary
  • Cuando la adolescente irlandesa Philomena Lee se queda embarazada en 1952. la envían al convento de Roscrea, en el condado de Tipperary, para que se hagan cargo de ella al considerarla mujer de mala vida. Allí cuida de su bebé durante tres años, hasta que la Iglesia se lo arrebata y lo venda, como a muchos otros, para entregarlo en adopción en Estados Unidos. Aunque la obligan a firmar un documento en el que promete no intentar volver a ver a su hijo nunca más, pasa los siguientes cincuenta años de su vida buscándolo en secreto, sin saber que él también la está buscando desde el otro lado del Atlántico
  • What the nuns did to pregnant teenager Philomena's son was not unheard of in 1952 Ireland. Fifty years after the nuns sold her child to America, Philomena seeks her son. Her son has the same idea. A lawyer for the first Bush administration, the boy who now goes by Michael Hess deals with the secrets he's kept from the Republican Party as he searches for his mom

Summary
"When she became pregnant as a teenager in Ireland in 1952, Philomena Lee was sent to a convent to be looked after as a "fallen woman." Then the nuns took her baby from her and sold him, like thousands of others, to America for adoption. Fifty years later, Philomena decided to find him. Meanwhile, on the other side of the Atlantic, Philomena's son was trying to find her. Renamed Michael Hess, he had become a leading lawyer in the first Bush administration, and he struggled to hide secrets that would jeopardize his career in the Republican Party and endanger his quest to find his mother. A gripping exposãae told with novelistic intrigue, Philomena pulls back the curtain on the role of the Catholic Church in forced adoptions and on the love between a mother and son who endured a lifelong separation." --
