Movies I Recently Watched and Enjoyed

A beautiful 3 hour long movie about St. Rita's life, concentrating on her relationship with her abusive and criminal husband and his family. One of the messages of the movie is that God gives each one of us the possibility to achieve holiness, no matter what our life situation is. It also illustrates the power of forgiveness in a moving way.
This movie redefines the notion of "soul mate". Your soul mate is not necessarily the person who would make you happy on earth, but the one who will be most likely to help you achieve salvation and holiness...and sometimes that has to be done through suffering and sacrifice.
Gorgeous movie! Watch it if you get a chance.
