MAGDALEN

“…Alix D. Smith, the actress who portrays the title character, Magdalen, is a world-weary young woman who earns her living in a bar, telling stories to lonely people for money. Smith’s presence on-screen is fascinating, unromantic and tough. The film itself unravels languidly, with stylish, moody black & white photography from local cinematographer Abe Holtz.”
—Carrie Tobey, The Philadelphia Weekly

“I’ll be damned if I’ve ever seen anything like it”.
—Sam Adams, The Philadelphia City Paper
