Bad Education - Rotten Tomatoes
Alma movie: The Magdalene Sisters (2002)

You thought your high school was lame? At least you weren't enrolled in one of the infamous Magdalene Asylums, where "fallen women" (a term that could be applied to anyone from a prostitute to a girl who was too much trouble, for whatever reason) were sent in the UK for several hundred years. Just how bad the conditions in the Asylums were has been hotly debated -- The Magdalene Sisters was banned by the Vatican -- but one thing's for sure: they were worse than study hall.
