Philomena Lee, an Irishwoman in her 70’s, became pregnant as a teenager in 1952.

Lee, who was forced to sign a document promising “never to seek to know” what happened to her son, later moved to England where she married and had a family. Through a lucky set of circumstances she happens to meet Martin Sixsmith, an ex-BBC reporter. When Philomena tells Martin about her long search for her son, he realizes that hers is a remarkable story. He arranges for the two of them to visit the United States to find out what happened to Anthony.

Last month Redbox released most of the movies nominated for Best Picture, but this month you get a chance to see the film that took home the crown. ’12 Years A Slave’ was deserving of the Oscar win. The film is a great true story based on a free man sold into slavery and his fight for to be free again. If you are looking for a laugh, Will Ferrell is always good for that. ‘Anchorman 2’ provides viewers with many more quotable scenes, as Ron Burgundy takes you on his rags to riches story. Movie night during home time with the kids? You can’t go wrong with Scooby-Doo. The old gang teaming up with professional wrestlers sounds fun!
