I just recommended January movies a few days ago, and now it is time to mention good movies for February.  There are three feasts for which I could find movies in February–Our Lady of Lourdes, Valentine and Josephine Bakhita.  The story of Our Lady of Lourdes is told in two documentary DVDs titled Woman Clothed with the Sun:  Zaragosa, Guadalupe and Lourdes and Miracles of Lourdes, Fatima, Guadalupe and Knock.  If you would rather not wait for April to watch a movie about the saint associated with Lourdes, (other than Our Lady)  check out Bernadette or the old favorite The Song of Bernadette.

A relatively unknown saint is Josephine Bakhita, the first saint from Sudan whose feast is February 8.  Her story is compelling and is relevant today because the suffering in Sudan continues.  She found her sanctification through the trials she endured and is an inspiration for all of us.
