Voiceover / Dialog / Script / Spoken Word

They said that you had abandoned him as a baby. 
I did not abandon my child. 
You'd be 50 today. 
Who is it? 
Your wife tells me you think you're mildly depressed. 
Well I got the sack. I'm unemployed. 
Yes, but it wasn't your fault. 
That's why I'm depressed.  
This is Martin Sixsmith. He used to be the BBC's man in Moscow. Became a spin doctor for the government and it all went a bit tits up. 
I always say, if you shovel shit for long enough, eventually you're gonna get some on your shoes.  
Yes, you got it on your head, how do you manage that. 
I know this woman, she had a baby when she was a teenager and she's kept it secret for 50 years. 
And what you're talking about would be called a human interest story, and that's, I don't do those. 
Why not? 
Do you think I should do a human interest story? 
Hello. You must be Philomena.  
What your mother did to you was evil. 
I don't like that word. 
No, no. Evil's good. Story-wise, I mean. 
I was gonna ask you if it'd be possible not to use my real name when you write the story. What about Anne? Anne Boleyn. It's a lovely name, oh well somebody had that of course. 
We're gonna have to use your real name, Philomena. 
I'd feel more comfortable if I could speak to Philomena in private. You're a journalist. 
Well, I used to be. 
Martin's a Roman Catholic. 
Well, no. I used to be. 
There are avenues we can pursue in America. 
I'm getting the Royal treatment, Martin. I feel like the Pope. 
Oh, no thank you. 
It's free. 
Oh, I see! We have to pay for everything on Ryanair. 
Look at the view! 
I only want to know if he's all right. What if he died in Vietnam, or what if he was obese? 
What on earth makes you think he'd be obese? 
Because of the size of the portions.  
I met him. 
At the White House. 
Do you remember anything he said? 
Hello. Hello. 
It might've been Hi. 
Oh, Martin! 
I just want to talk to you about my son. He was taken from me. And I've been looking for him ever since.  
Why would God bestow upon us a sexual desire that he then wants us to resist? 
The thing is, I didn't even know I had a clitoris, Martin.
