Magdeline Sisters

Could you imagine being forced into slave labor, being stripped of your freedom and dignity, and indefinitely having to suffer the sadistic consequences set forth by the Catholic Church for flirting with a boy, becoming pregnant out of wedlock or being raped? Well, 30,000 women in Ireland don’t have to imagine it; they lived it until a mere seven years ago. Acclaimed writer/director Peter Mullan translates this horrific reality of the Magdalene Sisters being sentenced to servitude for a religion’s exaggerated hysteria over sex until 1996, when the last of the Magdalene Asylums thankfully were closed. This is a shocking and well-crafted film you shouldn’t miss.
