Philomena comes home in April

Anchor Bay Entertainment and The Weinstein Company have just announced the home entertainment release of the critically acclaimed comedy/drama Philomena, directed by Stephen Frears, scheduling the release of April.
Judi Dench stars in the story of Philomena Lee, mother to a boy conceived out of wedlock and given up for adoption.  Nearly 50 years later, Philomena meets Martin Sixsmith (Steve Coogan), a former BBC reporter looking for his next big story.  Together, they embark on a journey to locate her long lost son.  As the pieces of the puzzle come together, the unlikely travel companions form a comic and heartwarming friendship.  Based on the 2009 investigative book by Martin Sixsmith ‘The Lost Child of Philomena Lee’, the film adaptation has been hailed as “a triumph for Judi Dench. 
Arriving on DVD and Blu-Ray Disc, the release will also contain special features, such as A Conversation with Judi Dench, The Real Philomena Lee, a Q&A with Steve Coogan and a Commentary Track with Steve Coogan and Screenwriter Jeff Pope.
“Philomena” will be in stores on April 15 for $34.99 on Blu-Ray Disc with UltraViolet Digital HD copy, and $29.99 on DVD.
