Philomena - starring Judi Dench. In 1952, a young Philomena was sent to the convent of Roscrea in Ireland after giving birth to her first child. When her son became a toddler, the nuns sent him to America for adoption. Philomena then spent the next fifty years seeking for him in vain.

This 2013 movie is rated PG-13 for some strong language, thematic elements and sexual references. It runs 98 minutes. Come join us in the Ruiz meeting room for a great movie and light refreshments.
