Movie Review: Cabrini Plus a $10 Amazon Giftcard Giveaway! #CabriniMIN #MomentumInfluencerNetwork


Based on the true story of one woman’s fight for the equality, health, and happiness of immigrant orphans.

From Alejandro Monteverde, award-winning director of 𝘚𝘰𝘶𝘯𝘥 𝘰𝘧 𝘍𝘳𝘦𝘦𝘥𝘰𝘮, comes the powerful epic of Francesca Cabrini, an Italian immigrant who arrives in New York City in 1889 and is greeted by disease, crime, and impoverished children. Cabrini sets off on a daring mission to convince the hostile mayor to secure housing and healthcare for society's most vulnerable. With broken English and poor health, Cabrini uses her entrepreneurial mind to build an empire of hope unlike anything the world had ever seen.

Over the course of 34 years Cabrini established an astonishing 67 hospitals, orphanages, and schools. Her energy was fueled by an intense focus on serving Jesus in whatever he asked of her and her legacy still stands today.

Cabrini was canonized in 1946 by Pope Pius XII and became the first American citizen to be named a saint. Four years later she was given the title of Patroness of Immigrants.


 My Review:

My first thoughts of Cabrini was how strong and brave she was despite her illness.  She worked hard to find a way to help children and she put her heart and soul into every assignment she was given.  She found a way and the strength to carry it out.

This movie took me through a lot of emotions and at times I found myself crying pitifully but other times I found myself wanting to shout yes, take that archibishop, ha ha mayor.   Cabrini was a force to be reckoned with. 

Unfortunately, I learned some language I didn't know in this movie and had to look up some names people called Italian immigrants during those times.  

My favorite sayings from Cabrini:  put your armour on, men cannot do what a woman can do, and my favorite of all; what kind of world do we want and what will we do to achieve it.

A true wonderful inspiring movie that you will always remember!

Buy tickets today to see Cabrini in theaters starting March 8th!

I have cried ugly cried at the movies. Probably the one that sticks out in my mind was watching the Green Mile.

Kathy said...

I don't remember ever crying at a movie at the theater, but it is probably because I usually go with my husband to see action flicks. :)

Yes, I cried watching The Color Purple when the original came out. I was about 10 years old. The ending when the sisters reunited always gets me.
