Why not depict as a role model?
17 February 2013 | by See all my reviews

While this version of Bernadette may not be as good as Bernadette starring Sydney Penny, it is certainly more historically accurate than the 1943 Song of Bernadette, a Hollywood made movie marked with numerous inaccuracies. Depicting Bernadette as a role model for women in no way detracted me from the film, as a matter of fact, Bernadette IS my role model. It does not go into the detail that Ms. Penny's movie does especially centering around the miracles, but it does depict her life and struggles, especially with the pundits who doubted her. One does not have to be a rocket scientist to realize that there is no way an illiterate, peasant girl could have known the term "Immaculate Conception", she could not have made it up nor heard of it, the film depicts her virtues which many of us today should emulate, a film worth watching.
