On September 10, 1946, Mother Teresa, a nun in the Catholic order, was riding on a train when she received what she took as a message from God telling her to assist the poorest of the poor, and to live among them. Committing to this new purpose brought her initially in conflict with the Catholic Church and the Government of India. Undaunted by the obstacles and challenges of her new calling, she rose to become viewed by many as the greatest humanitarian of modern time. THE LETTERS tells the story of how this tiny figure of a woman changed hearts, lives and inspired millions. Though she herself grew to feel an isolation and an abandonment by God, she said she saw God in every human being. Her story is told from the point of view of a Vatican priest charged with the task of investigating acts and events following her death. A Nobel Peace Prize Recipient, she is currently under consideration by the Catholic Church for sainthood.

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.
Underwhelming biopic about the extraordinary Mother Teresa.
