There is an instance in which Billy Crudup's character says that St. Bernadette is Our Lady of Lourdes. St. Bernadette is associated with Lourdes because that's where she had her visions. The visions were of Our Lady of Lourdes (Mary). The two are not equivalent. See more »
People like you must create. That's what you were brought into this world to do, Bernadette. If you don't, you become a menace to society.

Take your kids
Some reviewers criticized the film's pacing, I was fine with it. It's clear from the beginning the family is non-tradiotional, living in partially renovated, unkempt colossal house in a high end Seattle among well kept homes. Snobbery abounds. The viewer wonders about the past and it is revealed little by little in various ways. Bernadette & her daughter are unusually close, the parents less so. The ultimate strength of their bonds is what drives the last 1/3. I did snort-laugh a few times, for the record. A good film for families ( kids over 12 or so) to watch which may lead to discussions. Cate B's performance is excellent!
