Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., recently sat down for a meeting with an unusual activist: Philomena Lee.
Lee’s story has been adapted for film in “Philomena,” which depicts her journey with a reporter to find her long-lost son, who was taken from her by nuns in Ireland and adopted by American parents.
The path to the Oscars runs through the nation’s capital, for “Philomena” and other films, which hire Washington communications teams to work on their behalf, in a process that bears remarkable similarity to a traditional lobbying blitz.
