Miracles from Heaven (movie review)
I feel like I cut it close to catch this movie for the week. I didn't have a plan and only started looking at my options in the morning for an afternoon show. It was a choice between two when I checked out what was available.
I had previously saw an interview on the Today Show with Jennifer Garner talking about her role but was not set on seeing this movie. Only when I actually read the summary and checked the time did I make the final decision!
Boy, am I glad I did! You know you are in the right spot when the theater is packed. For weeks the theater has not been packed for a movie I went to see. For weeks I didn't have to look for a seat. This week I had to look for a seat (and don't get me started on the lovely lady who apparently bought a seat for her purse).
I will refrain from spoiling this movie too much but will tell you to have some napkins for your dirty hands or tissues for allergies. This movie will provoke watery eyes! I will leave it at that. You may come to your own conclusions but I will not tell you! However I have heard from some people how they appreciate being told when they may need tissues!
This movie is rated PG and runs for 1 hour and 49 minutes. The cast includes: Jennifer Garner, Queen Latifah and Martin Henderson to name a few. This movie is beautifully written! It's hits you to the core. The actors all play a stunning role to bring this true story to life.
A family is living life to the fullest until they hit a bump in the road. One of their own becomes sick. The world around them crumbles slowly around them. You of course are concerned with why you but you also want answers and help. How far will you go to fix your family? How much doubt can you have? Do you think it's only about you? How many people really suffer? What are you willing to give up?
Take your whole family to this movie! I was going to bring my youngest daughter but thought it might be too much. She would get more from it at home where I can talk to her to see what she understands and help her in understanding. However elementary, preteens and teens would be fine!
This may just be the movie of the year. Your not going to want to miss out on this! See it tomorrow! A great day with your family after family dinner or before.
