Household Saints is a leisurely-paced portrait of three different generations of working-class, New York-based, Italian women. Carmela Santangelo (Judith Malina) is an elderly immigrant whose son (Vincent D'Onofrio) wins a wife, Catherine Falconetti (Tracey Ullman), during a pinochle game. The pair have a daughter, Teresa (Lili Taylor), who becomes obsessed with religion, eventually believing that she will become the bride of Christ.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"An ambitious but muddled and uninvolving tale of the struggle of an American Italian family with religion, sex, and spirituality."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Shows that God moves mysteriously in our lives to work miracles while we are dealing with such seemingly insignificant matters as sausages, card games, ironing, and scrubbing the floors."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
