Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics Consensus: The Letters tries to honor Mother Teresa with an unstintingly positive portrayal of her life and works, but ends up smothering a fascinating real-life story under a bland hagiography.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Letters is a biographical drama about Mother Teresa. Starring English actress Juliet Stevenson as the Nobel Peace Prize-winning nun, the movie explores key moments in Mother Teresa's transformation from a convent nun who taught school in India to a Vatican-approved head of her own order dedicated to the "poorest of the poor." The movie features several scenes of human suffering, including the dying and poverty-stricken, as well as a protest by those temporarily angry that a temple was used as a hospital.
