A joyous family reunion becomes a hilarious nightmare as Madea and the crew travel to backwoods Georgia, where they find themselves unexpectedly planning a funeral that might unveil unsavory family secrets.
Incredibly eye-opening and informative, Saint Judy broadened my perspective on the modern immigrant's struggles upon arriving to the United States. The true narrative follows Judy Wood (Michelle Monaghan) and her ambitious attempts to help the case of Afghan woman Asefa, in which she applies for asylum after being imprisoned by the Taliban for empowering young girls with knowledge. Judy's unyielding effort to save Asefa then leads into a battle against the United States law of asylum for women. Although I am already familiarized with life for Hispanic immigrants, as my parents initially held that status, this film educated me on the brutal centers in which most immigrants are held, and on the law of asylum for especially Afghan women. Immigration being such a relevant topic today, I gained a new outlook on the modern immigrant and their struggles to reach equality and freedom within this country. I highly recommend you watch Saint Judy, as it encapsulated my attention while also giving me an inside viewpoint to the hardships immigrants, especially female, must endure.
