 Title  Sex in a Cold Climate
This is the documentary that inspired the film: The Magdalene Sisters. It is an exposé of the cruelty and abuse suffered by the inmates of Ireland's Magdalene laundries where woman who were thought to be 'fallen' were made to work 12 hours a day, six days a week, for no pay. Four former inmates, overdubbing quaint old footage of Ireland, narrate the film. This juxtaposition shows us how such injustice could go on: to the outside world these institutions seemed good, even idyllic, places to put these young girls. Link to reviews Included with
