Famous as the patron of hopeless situations, St. Rita of Cascia is immortalized in this deeply moving film, taking place in Italy in the 14th century. St. Rita was a brave, loyal woman who married a knight, helping him overcome his dark past and convert to faith. She happily bore him two children, but later in life endured immense pain as she lost everything. She found peace and new hope through the generosity of a nearby convent of sisters.  With their help she developed a deep union with Christ that greatly inspired all who neared her. Saint Rita is a powerful story that combines high drama and tragedy with profound forgiveness and strong faith. Italian with English subtitles (200 minutes).
