When she was only a teenager, she got pregnant and couldn't deal with a baby. She had to give her child to a covent, where the nuns gave her son for adoption without telling her first.
50 years later, journalist Martin Sixsmith takes her on a journey to find her lost child.
This Stephen Frears movie is really touching, even though what you'll remember most is Judi Dench's mesmerizing performance.
A must-see - 8.5/10.
