The lives of immigration lawyers aren’t often the subjects of Hollywood movies, but one in particular is being currently featured in theaters. Saint Judy
is a movie about crusading immigration lawyer Judy Wood,
who has fought for decades to make it easier for migrant women to seek asylum in America. Michelle Monaghan
plays Wood in the movie, and she describes Wood as a “force to be reckoned with.” CBS Sunday Morning
has more on the 72-year-old lawyer’s lifetime of work and the movie about her life, that was written by one of her former interns. A trailer for the movie
is below, and you can watch an interview with Wood and Monaghan at CBS News.
