CHICAGO – Patrick McDonald of audio film review for “Cabrini,” the origin story of the first American canonized saint, Mother Cabrini, directed by Alejandro Monteverde of “Sound of Freedom.” Currently in theaters see local listings. Oscarman rating: 3.5/5.0
Rating: 3.5/5.0

Christina Dell’Anna is Mother Cabrini, an Italian nun whose life mission is to build orphanages around the world. When she goes to Pope Leo (Giancarlo Giannini) to plead to do this in Asia, the Pope instead sends her to New York City America, where the notorious Five Points neighborhood is crowded by the influx of Italian immigrants in need. She goes to work building an orphanage and hospital, much to the chagrin of Archbishop Corrigan (David Morse) and New York’s Mayor Gould (John Lithgow). Some of their dread is bureaucratic and most has to do with the headstrong female in a man’s world. Can Mother Cabrini make a difference?

“Cabrini” is currently in theaters. Featuring Christina Dell’Anna, Giancarlo Giannini, David Morse, Romana Maggiora Vergano and John Lithgow. Written and Directed by Alejandro Monteverde. Rated “PG-13”
