The Bob Edwards Show, Philomena Lee and Doyle McManus, February 14, 2014 | [Bob Edwards]

The Bob Edwards Show, Philomena Lee and Doyle McManus, February 14, 2014

Then, Philomena Lee, whose story inspired the Oscar nominated movie Philomena starring Judi Dench and Steve Coogan. Philomena Lee is an 80-year-old Irish woman who spent decades searching for a son she had to give up when he was just a toddler, and she an unwed teenager. Catholic nuns took the boy and had him adopted to a couple living in the United States – a common practice in Ireland at the time – and then refused to help Philomena re-connect with her son. She then met a BBC journalist who helped her learn about her son’s life.
