Geraldine Chaplin makes the most of her title role in Mother Teresa: In the Name of God's Poor
30 May 2012 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Just watched this made-for-TV biopic of Mother Teresa on Netflix disc with my mom. She loved it and I admired it for depicting how then-Sister Teresa from Albania rose from a convent in India as a geography teacher to the self-sacrificing caregiver of the slums she became. Geraldine Chaplin makes the most of what's written about this Nobel prize winner for peace during the time this was made just before the noble woman passed on. Certainly the fact that it had to be less than two hours meant most of it took place at the beginning of her career before spending the last 15 minutes on her summation to a reporter of her life's work and then accepting the Nobel as she gives her speech in 1979. So on that note, Mother Teresa: In the Name of God's Poor merits a look for anyone interested in a history lesson.
