Venice Film Festival Golden Lion award winner is based on the true story of thousands of Irish women forced into servitude under Catholic nuns in Magdalene Asylums.

“What really struck me was that there’d been no closure to it, that there’d been no justice, no recognition, no compensation, no anything for these women,” said Scottish writer-director Peter Mullan at the post-show dinner held at Gotham’s Hotel Plaza Athenee.
