Synopsis

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 are 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.

Golden Lion Award, Best Picture, Venice Film Festival 2002 Toronto Discovery Award, for first or second-time directors voted for by 750 journalists, Toronto International Film Festival 2002.
