Coming to cinemas this Boxing Day is Philomena, from the director of The Queen and starring Judi Dench.
To celebrate, we have 20x double passes to the film to give away and 10x copies of the novel. To enter, fill in your details below.
Philomena is the true story of one mother's search for her lost son. Falling pregnant as a teenager in Ireland in 1952, Philomena Lee was sent to the convent of Roscrea to be looked after as a "fallen woman".
When her baby was only a toddler, he was whisked away by the nuns to America for adoption. Philomena (Judi Dench) spent the next fifty years searching for him in vain. Then she met Martin Sixsmith, a world-weary journalist as cynical as Philomena was trusting.
Together they set off for America on a journey that would not only reveal the extraordinary story of Philomena's son, but also the powerful bond that grew between Philomena and Martin.
Rating: M Offensive language and sexual references.
