The Letters – Waterworks Cinema
From December 14th through December 17th, the Waterworks Cinema will screen the Mother Teresa biopic The Letters. Juliet Stevenson portrays the humanitarian with a transformational performance that spans over 50 years. Written and directed by William Riead, the film, as told through personal letters the subject wrote over the last 40 years of her life, reveals a troubled and vulnerable woman who grew to feel an isolation and an abandonment by God. Told from the point of view of a Vatican priest charged with the task of investigating acts and events following her death, the biopic recounts her life’s work, her political oppression, her religious zeal and her unbreakable spirit. Tickets are available for purchase at the Waterworks Cinema website or at the theater.
