Judi Dench has six Oscar nominations on her resume, the last being for "Notes on a Scandal" at the 2007 ceremony. Above is the trailer for what could be number seven: "Philomena," a drama-comedy about an Irish woman (Dench) who uses a fallen journalist (the perfectly dry Steve Coogan, who also co-wrote the film) to find her long-lost son. Stephen Frears ("The Queen," "High Fidelity") directs "Philomena," which The Weinstein Company picked up for release after a sizzle reel for Frears' latest project was shown during this year's Cannes Film Festival. "Philomena" will debut at the Venice Film Festival before bowing in the United Kingdom on Nov. 1. No release date has been set here in the U.S., but expect one soon enough. This looks great.
