New film about Blessed Teresa of Calcutta
A new film about Blessed Teresa of Calcutta is soon to be launched (see trailer above), exploring her life through the letters that she wrote to her spiritual director, Father Celeste van Exem. The director and writer is William Riead and the film stars Juliet Stevenson, Rutger Hauer, Max von Sydow. (Information from IMDb H/T @LukeCoppen)
The film will be launched on 5 September (Blessed Teresa's feast day) in the United States. Then, if the usual process happens, I suppose we will have to wait a few months to send for a US format DVD because nobody in England will show the film or offer it on DVD. I hope that this doesn't happen.
