Storyline

Galway Private Investigator JACK TAYLOR is hired by the daughter of a former inmate of the infamous Magdalen Laundries to find the identity of a former nun, known only as LUCIFER, who was notorious for taking pleasure in torturing the girls. Jack has hardly begun his inquiries when he is warned off by local hard man BILL CASSELL. He also uncovers a seeming cover up when files which might have revealed the nun's identity are missing from Church Recored. The case grows more complicated when Jack discovers a connection between the execution style murders of two young men and the nun, Lucifer. Apparently someone is out to avenge themselves on Lucifer by killing those she holds dearest: Her nephews. What seemed like a simple case turns even more complicated for Jack when he accidentally causes the death of Bill Cassell's henchman. Now, not only are the Guards after Jack for his involvement in the henchman's death, but Bill wants a piece of him as well. It's a race against time for Jack to ... Written by Marteinn Thorisson

8 February 2014 | by (Chicago, IL USA) – See all my reviews

The script was superb as was the acting. The ending was not ambiguous. Kate sings a song about love which could be interpreted as singing to Jack. However, it's meaning to him evokes a feeling about his mother. He rushes to the hospital and in a gesture of great forgiveness and love, he takes her hand. She has had a stroke and cannot talk, therefore the scene is poignant and touching. Especially as she has been seen in previous scenes as a cold heartless person who has nothing but criticism for her son. After finding out about her experiences in the Magdalen Laundries through the diary of another girl, the way she lived her life makes sense to him. The depiction of the experiences of girls within the Magdalen institution are shown in flashback and are extremely powerful. As are also the funerals of the two boys which show Irish customs perfectly. Iain Glenn's performance is understated, but feels totally realistic - when Cody asks him if he wants to talk about his feelings, he says something like - I'm an Irish male and we use repression.
