* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Margaret puts poison oak in Father Fitzroy's clothes, causing him so much irritation that he strips off during a sermon. Unfortunately [[spoiler: Fitzroy was molesting Crispina, who developed a nasty rash around her thighs. Upon discovering this, the nuns put her in a mental institution as a way of keeping her silent about the abuse. She eventually dies there, at the age of 24.]]

* OneSteveLimit: Sister Bridget enforces this. There's already a Rose in the laundry so Sister Bridget forces everyone to call Rose Patricia (her middle name). Crispina's real name is Harriett so this may apply to her as well.

* MadeASlave
* MoneyDearBoy: Sister Bridget lets [[spoiler: Bernadette and Rose escape]] when Rose gives her the key to the safe with all the laundry's money in it.

to:

* MadeASlave
MadeASlave: Everyone not a nun, apparently. Though some of the more doubtful nuns might also see themselves as such eventually.
* MoneyDearBoy: InUniverse, Sister Bridget lets [[spoiler: Bernadette and Rose escape]] when Rose gives her the key to the safe with all the laundry's money in it.



* TechnologyMarchesOn: When the girls are first brought to the laundry, all the washing is done by hand. Over the course of the movie, washing machines are purchased (A technology that helped a lot in finally doing in these hellholes by its rise as a common household appliance destroying the consumer market for commercial laundries). Also, the nuns keep the profits in biscuit tins early on and Sister Bridget is exasperated when she can't find the key to the safe that is later added to her office.

Added DiffLines:

* FreakierThanFiction: Despite being based on a real case, the film tones down the habitual violence the girls endured under the nuns's hands and also showed the girls speaking to each other and forming friendships - in reality, both were forbidden.

''The Magdalene Sisters'' is an Irish drama film directed by Creator/PeterMullen. It was inspired by the documentary ''Sex In A Cold Climate'' and delves into one of the darker parts of Ireland's history - the Magdalene laundries. The laundries were originally established in Victorian times as a place to shelter women deemed "fallen" by society and they eventually evolved into places where any woman who was deemed corrupt by the Church was sent there for the rest of her life. The women were put to work in the laundries and kept under the supervision of nuns who punished them cruelly. The only way to leave the laundry was for two men over 18 to sign the woman out.

* HumiliationConga: An example that turns sour halfway through. The priest gets poison oak put in his clothes by Margaret. The itching kicks in during a public sermon and he strips off his clothes and runs off into town. It then turns out Crispina has the same rashes on her thighs, revealing she was molested.
