Atom User Reviews for Saint Judy
Too bad this hasn’t been better promoted. It’s very thought-provoking, with a very timely message.
Very well done and important! Like "On the Basis of Sex"!
It’s a letdown for a movie that has its heart in the right place to resort to so many clichés.
Although the pace lags at times and the narrative is a bit cliched, Saint Judy reminds us what America represents to the world. This timely and inspiring film instills faith in justice and human decency.
It is Monaghan who keeps the movie on track, capturing Judy’s fire along with her sometimes aggravating tenacity. This honest actress is incapable of idealizing the characters she plays, and her modest, energetic performance makes Saint Judy — which might have been a dry textbook lesson — engaging and moving.
