ENTERTAINING ANGELS
(THE DOROTHY DAY STORY) - DVD

The story of Dorothy Day, a remarkable woman who became one of the most influential human rights activists of the 20th century. Day defied social and political conventions in her quest for self-fulfillment in New York's bohemian Greenwich Village during the explosive era of the 1920s and '30s. She engaged in unconventional love affairs, boisterous barroom debates with such friends as Eugene O'Neill and Floyd Dell, and led radical demonstrations against social injustice. Surrounded by affluence, she chose to live in poverty among the poor of the Lower East Side. Deeply moved by the destitution and injustices around her, she underwent a powerful change and became a voice for the voiceless, a soldier for justice and a champion of non-violence.

Editorial Reviews

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.
