Human beings can be lovely
My favourite film genre is 'social realism'. I have a bit of an (albeit fair) reputation for only liking bleak human dramas. But human dramas don't have to be bleak, and people don't have to be nasty to make a good film. And Saint Frances is a beautiful film. Not a hint of saccharine, but a lovely study of how, despite their not inconsiderable troubles, people can be, and ultimately are, nice. Done well like this, heart warming dramas are every bit as emotionally compelling as their oft bleak counterparts. A lovely film for New Years Eve....
