Movie: "Entertaining Angels"

A memorable quip:

"Do you know what is the problem with the world? Those who act, don't think, and those who think don't act!" (Peter Maurin, played by Martin Sheen)

This movie is about Dorothy Day, a courageous woman, determined to help the poor started the Catholic Worker movement. A person who experienced personal failures in relationships, she learnt that work done for a community must always be done by a community, never an individual crusade.

The beginning was noisy. The middle was depressing. The end was touching.
