Quotes

[first lines]
Christy Beam: [narrating] When I was growin' up, people didn't really talk about miracles. I'm not sure I understood what they were or if I believed in them. A miracle is defined as something not explicable by natural or scientific laws. But then how do you explain it? How does it happen? Who or what is behind it?

Beautiful Story
16 July 2016 | by leavingonajetplaneSee all my reviews

I was a little trepid due to the religious undertones of this movie ... but ... I loved it! The casting is excellent, and just because Queen Latifah isn't doing a SNL impression doesn't mean she didn't do a good job in a character role. It's called acting.

The actress who played Anna was fantastic too, in fact the whole family was. BUT the stand out star by far was Jennifer Garner. To those critics who condemn her to Alias / Daredevil and other such ilks I say "not any more". Since Dallas Buyers Club she has shown she can adapt and is not only a fantastic character actor but that she is capable of leading a movie.

Garner has both warmth and strength, two characteristics I'm sure the real life mother had too. You can't help but buy in to this family and this story and I'm really glad I saw it.
