The Magdalene Sisters

The Magdalene Sisters was a good movie which followed the plight of three girls at a Magdalene Assylum. Overall, I would rate the movie 7/10.

It is strange that the Roman Catholic Church would establish and run such degrading institutions and the clergy there would behave so atrociously towards the women committed there. Ok, so I didn’t find that part strange. However, I was surprised that such institutions survived in Ireland till only a decade or two ago. I thought such places were closed with the advent of the 20th century.

Overall, I would rate the movie 7/10.
