The Magdalene Sisters
  • Description

    Winner of the Golden Lion at the 2002 Venice Film Festival, The Magdalene Sisters is the moving story about the triumph of the human spirit over all.

    Margaret, Rose and Bernadette arrive together at the Magdalene Laundries, an institution for 'fallen' women, where they will atone for their sins through a regimented life of work and prayer. Overseen by the monstrous Sister Bridget (Geraldine McEwan), they soon learn that friendship and conversation is frowned upon, as they are stripped of their liberty and dignity.

    Yet within the confines of this regime, a loyal bond develops between feisty Bernadette, headstrong Margaret and dreamy Rose, as they find moments of comfort and even laughter, and a hope that surpasses their daily hardship.

    Based on the true story of the thousands of women who passed through the gates of the Magdalene Laundries and into a chapter of Ireland's history that will never be forgotten., Winner of the Golden Lion at the 2002 Venice Film Festival, The Magdalene Sisters is the moving story about the triumph of the human spirit over all.
