The devil's doorway

IFC Films with Northern Ireland Screen presents a 23Ten production in association with YellowMoon and Kew Media Group ; screenplay by Martin Brennan, Michael B. Jackson, Aislinn Clarke ; directed by Aislinn Clarke.
Summary
"In the fall of 1960, the Vatican sent two priests, Father Thomas Riley (Lalor Roddy, Grabbers, Hunger) and Father John Thornton (Ciaran Flynn, The Survivalist, Primeval), to investigate a statue of the Virgin Mary weeping blood in a rural Irish convent, a "Magdalene laundry", that serves as a religious asylum for prostitutes, the mentally disabled, and unmarried pregnant women. In hopes of capturing photographic evidence of this apparent miracle, Father Thornton films their inquiry with a portable 16mm camera. However, the resident Mother Superior denies knowledge of any supernatural phenomenon and her impious views toward her wards, and the nuns' cruel treatment of them, shock both priests. When the priests finally gather indisputable evidence of a potential miracle, it leads to an exhaustive search of the convent's grounds, where they discover Kathleen O'Brien (Lauren Coe, The Halcyon, Lie Of You), a 16-year-old pregnant girl exhibiting signs of demonic possession, leading the priests to question whether the omens witnessed have been the work of God ... or Satan."--Container.
