In Philomena, Steve Coogan’s Martin trades political journalism for human-interest storytelling to help Judi Dench’s title character find the son she put up for adoption decades prior. The quest leads the unlikely duo to America, where it seems they find her long-lost son.

The film, directed by Stephen Frears (The Queen, High Fidelity), was a People’s Choice Award runner-up at this month’s Toronto International Festival. Get a sneak peek in the just-released trailer below:
