Ireland/UK
Four Irish women leave Dublin for the first time bound for Lourdes. Laura Linney, Kathy Bates and Maggie Smith star.

In Detail

Set in 1960s Ireland, this film tells the story of “funny, messy, vocal and flawed” working-class women who have never left their homes in the suburbs of Dublin.

With “benevolent interference” from their local priest, they escape their daily struggles when they win the prize of a lifetime – a church talent competition that takes them to a place of miracles, the sacred French town of Lourdes. The film succeeds mainly because of a flawless ensemble, among whom viewers can put their faith in the eternally dependable Smith stealing the movie. This is a story of forgiveness and understanding that will provoke tears and laughter.
