My Thoughts

I love movies that are based on true stories and I was excited to see the story of Cabrini. I had never heard of her and knew nothing about the history surrounding this film. Set in 1889 New York the viewer gets a front row seat to the sad and unheard of living conditions that the immigrants, specifically the Italians, survived on a daily basis. How other people treat another people group is appalling and during this time you could do what you wanted and pretty much get away with it or even be encouraged to do so. 

In steps a very strong willed woman who wants to help the young children who are surrounded by the violence and who are in poor living conditions in New York City. The film doesn't back away from showing the hard things. There are prostitutes, gore from a hospital scene, murder while trying to protect oneself, and overall violence of hate for a specific people group. This isn't a movie I would watch with young children. It is rate PG-13 for a reason. Also, this movie is very long as it covers so many details from Cabrini's life and what she accomplishes. It is a slow moving film that is also spoken mostly in Italian. You have to be able to read the subtitles or you won't understand much that is happening. Going into this movie I wish I had known that or been better prepared because you really have to read what is being said and pay attention. 

All that to say I have a deeper interest in the life of Cabrini and what she did is incredible. She knew her life mission and she did it no matter what. She was a servant to others and it is evident in this film what she accomplished. This is a tough movie to watch due to the content so I am not sure I would want to watch it twice. Films like this tend to stick with the viewer for a long time. If you are interested in history and true stories you might enjoy this film!
