Harrowing
24 July 2003 | by James McAnespySee all my reviews

This is a truly harrowing drama. Set in the ultra conservative Ireland of the 60s, it portrays how Catholic women were punished because they became pregnant out of wedlock. The direction is among the best I have ever seen. Kudos. I have not yet seen the better-known "Magdalene Sisters," but I'm sure it will not disappoint.
