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 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. 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. Martin Sheen, Melinda Dillon and Brian Keith join Kelly in this moving saga of a faith not just believed, but lived.
