Yoo Hoo, Disney EchoEars!

A lovely independent biographical movie is set to debut this October.

It is about the young Catholic saint Saint Therese of Lisieux, "The Little Flower". From what I already know about this young woman's life, it would be excellent for young people and young adults to see this film. She suffered a lot of challenges and setbacks to become one of the greatest of Catholic saints, appointed a 'Doctor' of the Catholic church in recent years because her ideas of doing good despite one's 'ordinary' position in life profoundly affected the Church in the 20th century, even into Vatican II.

If you've a mind to do so, investigate the movie's WWW site at www.theresemovie.com

And if you've a further mind to do so kindly do spread the word by word of mouth, E-mail, etc. The movie makers are hoping to get 1,000,000 hits on the site to show support for the movie's release by July 20th for an October 2003 release date.

Thanks for your time and for visiting the site if you voluntarily so desire.

I just went to the website. The music is beautiful.

I had done a report on St. Therese as a little girl in catholic school and took her name as my confirmation name.
I have gotten prayer cards from the Little Flower web site, as well as mass cards. When I became ill with MS I prayed to St. Therese. The mass cards have a beautiful saying and I have sent them to family and friends who have lost someone.

The movie should be very moving and I will be watching for it.

Search www.theresemovie.com and you'll find a support-the-movie area where you can enter your zip code.  The production company uses this information to prove to distributors there is sufficient public interest in this fil to merit distribution nationwide.  The site needs 1,000,000 hits by July 20 to accomplish that goal.  So far they have 500,000 hits.  This is how you can show support, also by word-of-mouth via E-mail, phone, fax, letter, IM, talking with family, friends, your parish or church, letters to the editor, etc.

The news now is that the movie apparently didn't get the one million website hits they were hoping for in time to interest a distributor for an October release (October 1 is the saint's feast day and they passionately wanted the film out in Therese's month), so now they are hoping for a spring 2004 release. This would put "Therese" along side Mel Gibson's "The Passion" in theatres about the same time. Therese has a strong love for Jesus, so this would work out great, too.  

So please, keep "hitting" www.theresemovie.com and tell your friends and teenagers/young adults about the movie.




THERESE MOVIE POSTER AVAILABLE

Dear Friends of THÉRÈSE,

The THÉRÈSE movie poster has arrived!

This special, full-color, limited edition run of the beautiful, 27" x 40" movie image is being offered at a price of $24.99 (plus postage) to those who are waiting anxiously for the release of the THÉRÈSE film.  The poster is a work of art that will not only promote the film, but will also be a source of inspiration on the walls of any home or church.

Here's a perfect gift for everyone on your Christmas list! Order yours today, since we have only printed a limited supply. Click here to see the poster and to order online: http://www.theresemovie.com/en/showing/info_content.html

The response to our appeal for grassroots publicity help has been overwhelming!  Thank you to all who contacted us for materials to distribute, to spread the word about the THÉRÈSE film, and to get more people to visit the movie website.  We are still shooting for 1,000,000 visits by October 1st, the Feast of Saint Thérèse of Lisieux, so that we have a fighting chance of launching the film next spring.  Keep hitting the website and spreading the word.

THERESEMOVIE.COM IS ONE OF THE TOP 100,000 WEBSITES IN THE WORLD! This is extremely significant, and our rank is making film industry professionals sit up and take notice of the phenomenal interest in this film. Remember, we have spent next to nothing on the promotion of the website - all the response has come from word of mouth!  Imagine the response if we had a marketing budget even one fourth of a studio production - Based on the popularity of and devotion to Saint Thérèse, the movie would break all records!

The website is very important - call or reply to masny@lukefilms.com to get materials to distribute and post that build public awareness.

WE NEED YOUR FINANCIAL SUPPORT!  The other element that will ensure a spring launch is, of course, adequate funding.  We have raised $70,000 towards our goal of $1,000,000. Think of people who could make a significant contribution, and get us in contact with them.  But also remember that we're doing this the miraculous "little way" of Saint Thérèse - every donation moves us closer to our goal, and the widow's mite makes all the difference.

To donate online go to: http://www.stlukeproductions.com. Or call to order or donate by phone: 1-800-683-2998. Or send your check to:

Thank you and God bless,
Leonardo Defilippis
