It's a Must See
8 March 2019 | by ecsd-41839See all my reviews

Saint Judy is the story of Judy Wood and how she saved millions of women's lives by changing the interpretation of political asylum in the United States. In the Film, Wood is an immigration attorney who truly believes that the U.S. should welcome people seeking asylum. She fights for these people, particularly women, to save them from deportation and death. Director, Sean Hanish, did an excellent job with the flashbacks which serve to reveal depth and complexity in both the characters and the situation. I believe that the acting in the movie is excellent, and the message the film is promoting is profound. I think this film is good enough to recommend it to everyone. If you're an attorney or a human rights activist, it's a must see.
