Judi Dench at "Philomena" press conference in Venice

Last month at the Venice Film Festival, Judi Dench spoke eloquently at the "Philomena" press conference about meeting the real Philomena Lee, now 80, and the challenges of bringing her unusual life to the screen. Watch below.

"Philomena," directed by Stephen Frears and also starring Steve Coogan (who penned the script), was met with glowing praise out of Venice upon its premiere (TOH! review here), with plenty of chatter about Dench's performance -- she is currently a contender for a Best Actress nomination.

The film hits theaters stateside on November 22, via the Weinstein Company; trailer here.
