Sister Úna Lived A Good Death: Review

Sister Úna Lived A Good Death: Review. By Richard Schertzer.

Director Par Parekh gives us a glimpse into the last months of Sister Una Feeney’s life as she sadly died from stage IV cancer. Feeney, while she was alive, proved to be a feisty and unorthodox Catholic nun, which is a lovely portrait of a woman that lived life to the very fullest extent.

The film begins with the funeral of Feeney and flashbacks to what lead to her inevitable demise much like an Eric Roth script. She proved to be a nun that was very much of her own accord and lived life by her own book, despite being married to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for much of her life.



This isn’t the first time that I have reviewed a documentary about someone’s imminent death but this certainly is a very impactful film with a litany of heart that tears at the soul with every passing minute.

The camera work from Parekh proves that he is a capable director clever enough to engage in uncomfortable conversations and talk about things that might terrify us all. His respect towards the sensitive topic is something to be incredibly admirable of. It’s no small feat to tackle such an issue with such grace and innovation, but this works well.

It’s amazing looking at who this person once was even if we as an audience can no longer talk with her. The film works almost like a journal to document the life and times of this woman. It’s a great letter to a beautiful soul.

In conclusion, this film has a deep-rooted heart and soul that matches its subject perfectly. It’s just sad that Feeney won’t be able to see the final product.
