The Magdalene Sisters

Set in the early '60s, this hard-hitting British drama exposes life behind the walls of the notorious (and very real) Magdalene Sisters asylums. These facilities were built to raise young women who became pregnant, were raped or were otherwise "corrupted" in the eyes of the Lord. The sisters believed that forgiveness could only come through a life of backbreaking labor and forced these young girls into a lifetime of indentured servitude in their profitable laundry facilities. The story is seen through the eyes of three young women sent to the Magdalene Sisters against their will. Dark, brutal and eye-opening, this religious twist on One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest features some amazing acting and some heart-rending drama. 119 minutes
