What to Watch for at the 2014 Oscars
Stephen Frears' Philomena is another Best Picture nominee based on a true story. Judi Dench gives an Oscar-nominated performance as Philomena Lee, a woman whose son was taken away from her and put up for adoption by nuns when he was three years old. The movie drew such strong reactions that it enabled the real-life Philomena Lee to visit Pope Francis at the Vatican, where they viewed and discussed the film. Philomena is also nominated for Best Original Score and Best Adapted Screenplay.
