|Went to see the "Magdalene Sisters" feeling disgruntled and wearied by the fact that all we ever see of Ireland is old and dreadful. This fulfilled all of those expectations but is worth the visit. Beautifully made and excruciatingly well acted, and besides, all those burgeoning girls - in spite of their plight - remind us of life. Have a look for yourself.
I fear flashbacks from 6-years of Catholic education, but want to see it anyway.
