The Magdalene Sisters

(miramax) Release Date: August 1, 2003 Director: Peter Mullan Cast: Anne-Marie Duff, Dorothy Duffy, Geraldine McEwan, Nora-Jane Noone, Eileen Walsh Plot: Set in Ireland in 1964, this film tells the stories of four women sent to the Magdalene Sisterhood convent to \"correct\" their behavior: Crispina and Rose both gave birth to children out of wedlock; orphaned Bernadette tends to be very flirtatious with boys; and Margaret\'s offense was that she got raped by her cousin at a wedding. Forced by the nuns to work in a laundry seven days a week, the girls become subject to a daily battle of wills with the cruel nuns who want to strip them of any sense of individuality, using both physical and psychological torture.
