Entertaining Angels DVD
|Like many people, Dorothy Day (1897-1980) just wanted to find fulfillment in her life. "Entertaining Angels: The Dorothy Day Story" shows how she found it in serving New York's poor and being a voice for the voiceless. Moira Kelly delivers a winsome portrayal of 20 years in Day's life, during which she works as a Marxist journalist, leads a less than virtuous life, then undergoes a religious transformation that changes her life forever. The film shows Dorothy's struggle as she establishes the Catholic Worker movement and commits herself to a lifetime of peacemaking, battling for justice, and hands-on service to the poor.

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.
