The British indie gem “Philomena” tells the true story of Philomena Lee (Judi Dench), a simple Irish woman who enlists the help of veteran journalist Martin Sixsmith (Steve Coogan) to find her long-lost son who was taken away from her by an Irish Catholic convent 50 years ago.

‘Philomena’ Stars Talk Faith and Judi Dench spoke with star, writer and producer Coogan and actress Sophie Kennedy Clark -- who portrays Philomena when she was a teenager – about how the film handles faith and working with the great Dame Judi Dench.

“Philomena” opens in limited theaters this Friday.
