From acclaimed director Peter Mullan comes THE MAGDALENE SISTERS, an unflinching and compelling
emotional drama, charting several years in the young lives of four "fallen women" who were rejected by their families
and abandoned to the mercy of the Catholic Church in 1960's Ireland. While women's liberation is sweeping the
globe, these women are stripped of their liberty and dignity and condemned to indefinite sentences of servitude in The
Magdalene Laundries, in order to atone for their "sins." The last Magdalene Asylum in Ireland closed in 1996, and
only since has the true horror of conditions in these institutions begun to emerge.
