Earnest if modest period piece which reverently dramatizes the life of St. Therese of Lisieux (Lindsay Younce), known more affectionately as the "Little Flower." Based on her posthumously published autobiography, "The Story of a Soul," and directed by Leonardo Defilippis, the film is not so much a textured spiritual portrait of the young French nun considered by Pope Pius X "the greatest saint of modern times" but a series of hagiographic tableaus which many Catholic viewers may find edifying. The beauty of Therese's inspirational life and words still shine through the film's production limitations. Thematic elements involving parental death, and a criminal execution. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG -- parental guidance suggested.
