Ireland in the sixties: Four women are given into the custody of the Madgalene sisterhoood asylum to correct their more or less sinful behaviour: Crispina and Rose have given birth to a pre-marriage child, Margaret got raped by her cousin and the orphan Bernadette had been repeatedly caught flirting with the boys. All have to work in a laundry under the strict supervision of the nuns, who break their wills through sadistic punishments. Some of the inmates develop countermeasures, while others perish under the treatment.


Riveting film.. A truly intense experience,'The Magdalene Sisters' hugely deserved its prize at the Venice Film Festival. Acting of the finest calibre from a largely unknown cast, special mention must be made of Eileen Walsh as Crispina - who willever forget her agonized outburst at the priest during the service in the field. This and many other images will haunt me for a long time. Outstanding.
