Title: THERESE: ORDINARY GIRL, EXTRAORDINARY SOUL
Heralded as one of the most inspiring films in recent years, Therese recounts the life of Therese of Lisieux, the most popular saint of modern times. A bourgeois girl from a Victorian French family, Therese journeyed to Rome to beg Pope Leo XIII for permission to enter Carmelite monastery at the unheard age of 15. Through the rigors of monastic life, she made the surprising yet simple discovery that holiness can be achieved by small acts of love and compassion - a spiritual path she called the "little way." This film is a beautiful retreat into the world of a remarkable young girl who fell in love with God. A drama of tragedy and triumph, Therese presents the true story of an ordinary girl with an extraordinary soul.
