Dorothy Day is no saint. She lives hard, makes mistakes, endures the consequences. But the unquenchable fire burning within her cannot be contained. Dorothy wants to make a difference. During the Depression, she vows to house the homeless, feed the hungry, tend the sick. Easily said. Not easily done when her total finances amount to 97 cents in a battered canister. Yet Dorothy persists, walking on frequently stormy waters of faith.

Popular stars and important themes combine in this compelling true story of the "American Mother Teresa," filmed by Paulist Pictures (Romero) from a script by ER writer and executive producer John Wells. Moira Kelly plays Day, the impassioned New York journalist who launched the activist newspaper "Catholic Worker" and put the words she wrote into controversial action. Martin Sheen, Melinda Dillon and Brian Keith join Kelly in this moving saga of a faith not just believed, but lived. RATED PG-13 for a range of thematic elements, some sexuality and brief language.

DVD FEATURES: Languages - English and Spanish tracks available. Subtitles - English. Viewing Format - Fullscreen. Sound - Stereo, Dolby Surround. Bonus Material - Movie trailer, actor commentaries and biographies. Chapter titles provided for easy scene access.

    Moves at a good pace

    This lady has an abortion as a result of a one night stand circa 1920s. But she turns her life around and helps the homeless. She redeems herself in some ways. It's a true story I gather and I had never heard of her until this dvd. It will hold your interest and moves at a good pace. But there are so many other stories of goodness and triumph that surely top this one.

    Entertaining Movie!!!

    Excellent movie about Dorothy Day! A more modern day-ish St. Augustine story. With Martin Sheen and Moira Kelly, the acting is wonderful. Best Uses: Education, Entertainment; Pros: Good acting, Realistic
