Saint Judy is the story of how Judy Wood saved millions of women’s lives by changing the interpretation of political asylum in the United States. In the Film, Wood is an immigration attorney who truly believes that the U.S. should welcome people seeking asylum. She fights for these people, particularly women, to save them from deportation and sometimes death. The human rights message the film projects is profound and overall the plot is very uplifting. This film educated me and opened my eyes to the brutal ways most immigrants are held, and how the law of asylum affected women. This is a fantastic telling of Ms. Wood's story that I really enjoyed watching. It is led by a talented cast, which makes this an easy movie to recommend.
