Philomena Trailer: Judi Dench, Adoption, Tears

Technically, Steve Coogan co-stars in Philomena, about a washed-up journalist who helps an aging British woman find the son she gave up for adoption 50 years ago. But this is the Dame Judi Dench show, and oh man: If you are susceptible to parent-child-relationship tears, then beware this trailer. Good Anne Boleyn joke, too. Your Best Actress Oscar race is heating up.
