Reviews
Mine: Very powerful and heartfelt movie. Really stays with you. A tragic tale without a tragic figure. The title character has such forgiveness and grace it is hard to believe. Wonderful performances by Dench and Coogan. The movie makes me mad about all the evil that has been done in the name of religion.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: A world-weary political journalist picks up the story of a woman's search for her son, who was taken away from her decades ago after she became pregnant and was forced to live in a convent.
