When I looked at moviefone for info on this movie, it was very confusing!! it gave an explanation of a Japanese film directed by a Japanese director....also with the title Leonie. I knew that seemed strange as this one is a MADE IN MICHIGAN CATHOLIC MOVIE based on a true story of the life of Leonie Martin and her four sisters, one of them being St Therese...This was the \"red carpet premiere\" at the Emagine theater in Novi, MI., and is not showing at any other theater. It is a beautiful movie played out by amateur actors but very well done. The photography and the directing were great, and the out-takes at the end were very funny. It was very highly attended. With all the terrible summer movies that are out this year, this was most refreshing; I can only hope more of this type will come. God bless the cast and all the people that put this gem together.
