Plot Summary
In 1964, three teenage Irish girls are sent to a Magdalene asylum, an archaic home for "fallen women," though their crimes aren't criminal. Rose (Dorothy Duffy) is pregnant out of wedlock, Bernadette (Nora-Jane Noone) has been caught flirting with a boy at school, and Margaret (Anne-Marie Duff) is sentenced for having been raped by a family member. There, the girls perform hard labor supervised by cruel nuns, led by the sneering Sister Bridget (Geraldine McEwan) -- and dream of escape.

    EVERY CATHOLIC WHO BURIES THEIR HEADS IN THE SAND SHOULD BE FORCED TO WATCH THIS MOVIE. THIS ISN\'T HERESY...IT\'S DOCUMENTED FACT THAT THE CHURCH TURNED A BLIND EYE TO THESE POOR GIRLS WHO WERE FORCED TO HAVE SEX WITH PRIESTS AND THEN SELL THE BABIES TO MAKE MONEY FOR THE CONVENT. THE MOVIE SHOOK ME AS A ROMAN CATHOLC MORE THAN SCHINDLER\'S LIST.........SHAME SHAME SHAME
