Movie Minute: The Letters

MOTHER TERESA, recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, is considered one of the greatest humanitarians of modern times. Her selfless commitment changed hearts, lives and inspired millions throughout the world. THE LETTERS, as told through personal letters she wrote over the last 40 years of her life, reveal a troubled and vulnerable women who grew to feel an isolation and an abandonment by God. The story is told from the point of view of a Vatican priest charged with the task of investigating acts and events following her death. He recounts her life’s work, her political oppression, her religious zeal and her unbreakable spirit.

I had a chance to review the film in advance of its Dec. 4th release. It was well-done, providing more insight into who she was and how her relationship with God changed over her life. It's unfortunate that she had to see so much sorrow, but there are certainly live that have been changed because of her.
