If you want to see it, your heart is in the right place. Go see it.
4 December 2015 | by macuysSee all my reviews

Don't go looking for excuses not to. You will not find any reason here. I personally enjoyed the film. I found it informative, inspiring and enlightening. I too was a skeptic and had serious questions regarding her sanity and her mission. From the point of view of an outsider it seemed to be such a foolish and futile mission. A simple explanation on how something nonsensical actually makes sense. India has a caste system wherein the lowest of the caste or "untouchable" are helplessly poor with no chance of changing their circumstance. Adding to that the country is overpopulated. So do the math. Her mission was to help the poor and India had in abundance the people she was seeking to help. It was exactly the place she needed to be! By the end of the film all my doubts erased and every question answered. I hope this encourages you to see it yourself and disregard any poor reviews of this film. Deepen your knowledge of Blessed Mother Teresa, her life and her mission.
