The Institute of Irish Studies will be hosting a screening of multi-award winning drama Philomena, based on the true story of Philomena Lee's 50-year search for her son, who had been forcibly adopted from the Magdalene Laundry where her father had sent her, and journalist Martin Sixsmith’s efforts to help her find him.
