Plot Summary

The triumphant story of three extraordinary women whose courage to defy a century of injustice would inspire a nation! Abandoned by society and cast out by their families for crimes they did not commit, these women found themselves stripped of their liberty and dignity and condemned to indefinite sentences of manual labor. Within the church-run Magdalene Laundries, these women were forced into unbearable institutional servitude in order to cleanse themselves of the "sins" of which they had been accused.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: This drama about a shocking reality from recent history balances a light touch with searing intensity and a sense of moral outrage. – David Rooney, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: Mr. Mullan's fictional treatment of this subject in The Magdalene Sisters has much to commend. – Andrew Sarris, New York Observer, Apr 27, 2007

Fresh: Watching the film, you can feel years of real pain. It feels more like gothic documentary than darkly limned fancy. – Desson Thomson, Washington Post, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: A stirring, emotionally galvanizing film, not only due to its shattering subject matter but thanks to Mullan's spot-on eye for casting and fluid, uncoercive style. – Ann Hornaday, Washington Post, Jun 24, 2010
