Showtime, 8:00 p.m. ET

 

Steven Coogan, more known in the U.K. for straight comedy roles and sketch characters, co-wrote the screenplay for this 2013 character drama, and co-stars, in a story of a journalist (Coogan) who takes on the challenge of finding what happened to the infant son of an Irish woman who, many decades earlier, was taken away from her while she was in the care of nuns at a convent. Judi Dench plays the woman, and Sophie Kennedy Clark portrays her younger counterpart in flashbacks.
