Miracles from Heaven – will make you laugh & cry. It’s based on the book “Three Miracles From Heaven” by Christy Beam, played by Jennifer Garner. Garner captures the tension &stress of being the parent of a very sick little girl. A young doctor is ready to wave her away with his hand when she brings her daughter into the emergency room once again with severe stomach pain &a bloated belly &tells her there is nothing seriously wrong. However, Christy has had enough &scolds him. Needless to say, further tests are conducted &they soon learn that little Anna (Kylie Rogers) is more seriously ill than anyone expected. Both Garner &little Kylie Rogers truly stand out in this film. Kylie hits all the right notes as the adorable little girl, particularly on love &compassion, &conveys Anna’s suffering &pain very realistically. The family faces tremendous pressure, including rising medical bills &a flight every 6 weeks to Boston to see Anna’s specialist, Dr. Nurko (Eugenio Derbez), a doctor who is terrific with kids, compassionate &funny. He knows how to make everyone laugh. Another true friend is Angela (Queen Latifah), who supports Anna &Christy with a smile &a quick wit. Christy needs Angela’s support, especially when Anna says she wishes she would die when she is tired of being sick. Wounded by some unthinking people in church, Christy stays away from faith but finally asks for God’s help when another event occurs that could mean the loss of everything they have fought for regarding Anna. Without plot spoiling, we’ll just say the word “miracle” is in the film’s title for a reason. Anna touches several lives in the picture, including the father of one her sick little friends whom she met in the hospital. The movie stirs the emotions. If you think deep love is missing from families, you won’t think so after watching this inspiring, dramatic, &hope-filled film. It is a story about God’s love &powerfully makes the point that we are never alone. This movie has earned our “Faith-Friendly” Seal for ages 12-plus &five Doves, our best rating.
