A pampered child from a middle-class 19th century French family, Therese Martin journeys to Rome to beg Pope Leo XIII for permission to enter the Carmelite monastery at the unheard-of age of 15. Once admitted she experiences the joys and rigors of monastic life, and makes the surprising yet simple discovery that holiness can be achieved by small acts of love and compassion – a spiritual path she calls her “Little Way.” With a soundtrack composed by a cloistered Carmelite nun, this film is a beautiful retreat into the world of a Saint Therese of Lisieux, an ordinary girl with an extraordinary soul.
Therese stars Lindsay Younce and Leonardo Defilippis.
