The Weinstein Co. has staked out Nov. 22 for the U.S. release of the Judi Dench-Steve Coogan awards contender “Philomena.”

TWC will open the drama in Los Angeles and New York against Lionsgate’s “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” and Disney’s comedy “Delivery Man” and then expand it on Nov. 27, the day before Thanksgiving.

Stephen Frears’ film received strong critical support following screenings at the Venice and Toronto festivals. Dench stars in the title role.

Coogan originated the project after reading an article about the real-life Philomena Lee, who had spent years trying to track down the illegitimate son she’d given up for adoption decades earlier. Coogan wrote the script with Jeff Pope and stars as journalist Martin Sixsmith, who chronicles the search for the son.

Producers are Gabrielle Tana, Coogan and Tracey Seaward.
