The French soundtrack specialist Alexandre Desplat garners another Oscar nomination for his score to Philomena, the true story of how one Irish woman's (Judi Dench) quest to find her long-lost son, along with journalist Martin Sixsmith (Steve Coogan).
The search takes Philomena and Martin to a convent, where she believes her son was resident after she gave him up for adoption. However, the pair receive some startling news, which Desplat scores sensitively with barely-audible woodwind chords and gentle acoustic guitar.
