This is a very human-feeling drama that’s still all about God’s priorities, God’s choices and God’s timing.
I couldn’t have watched a more beautiful film than the one I watched a couple of hours ago. The movie was Miracles from Heaven and though it was a film released last year in March 2016, I only got to know of it while searching for ‘faith based movies‘ (to be exact with the keywords I used on google search) Having just finished watching a movie in a similar genre, namely ‘What if… God gave you a second chance?‘ led me to see if there were other such movie similar to that.
It was said that the movie Miracles from Heaven is based on a real story that actually happened, a book was written by Annabelle’s mother which was later turned into the movie. I would love to get my hands of that book too, when I do.
The synopsis of the movie being: 10 year old Anna Beam lives with a rare, incurable disorder that leaves her unable to digest food. Despite the dire diagnosis, devoted mom Christy relentlessly searches for a way to save her beloved daughter. Everything changes in an instant when Anna tells an amazing story of a visit to heaven after surviving a headlong tumble into a tree. Her family and doctors become even more baffled when the young girl begins to show signs of recovering from her fatal condition.
I am glad I came across this movie, downloaded it and watched it. Definitely worth investing an hour and 45 minutes for the film.
What was it that led me to this movie or even do the google search I did, I’m not really sure but I guess sometimes you just do certain things that you aren’t really sure of. I’m not someone who is generally moved by watching a film, but then there are some that well.. just leave a lasting impression on you, like this one did to me
From the performances to the cinematography, it is a film well made. A special mention goes out to Jenifer Garner who shines in the role of a mother, definitely not an easy role to do but dos justice to it.
A definite tear-jerker. Do watch the movie if you get the chance.
If you want to watch another wonderful movie, by now I’ve got a list of them.. OctoberBABY – another must watch. I could go on.. on to watching my next movie now.
