On December 2nd, 1980, lay missioner Jean Donovan and three American nuns were brutally murdered by members of El Salvador's security force. This "sensitive, marvelously constructeed film" (Catholic New York) chronicles Jean's life, from her affluent childhood in Connecticut to her decision to volunteer with the Maryknolls in El Salvador, to her tragic death. An award-winning classic for the ages, Roses in December is both an eloquent memorial to the commitment of this courageous young woman and a powerful indictment of U.S. foreign policy in Central America.
One of the best films of the year! A taut, exemplary piece of humane film making that avoids politcally sentimentality and glib answers. --Time Magazine
The power of this documentary is that it may reshock us into remembering the United States' complicity in El Salvador: Our government arms a government that kills Americans. --Washington Post
Don't miss it. And have your teenagers see it too. --Catholic New York

El Salvador by the military. The film does a great job of documenting her life and the reasons she stayed in El Salvador even though she new that it was a dangerous place for her at the time. I recommend this film highly.
