How much do we really know about the patron saint of immigrants? This fictionalized true story fills in many of the details as it tells her compelling tale. Arriving in New York City in 1889 to help the thousands of Italian immigrants already in the city, Francesca Cabrini, in poor health herself, is greeted by disease, crime and impoverished children. With broken English, she soon sets off on a seemingly impossible mission to convince New York’s mayor (John Lithgow, in an uncharacteristically dour role) to secure housing and healthcare for society’s most vulnerable.

“Cabrini’s story is rather absorbing and the film offers a lushly mounted portrait of life in 1880s New York, when immigration was just as much of a contentious issue as it is today.” — Leslie Felperin, The Guardian
