The ladies thanked the voters for their giant surfboard and posed for photos together backstage; Jennifer looked fresh and gorgeous in a black strapless jumpsuit and half-up hairstyle - anyone else getting 13 Going on 30 vibes?

[Review] Fathers and Daughters

The works of director Gabriele Muccino aren’t for everyone. I can’t speak on his Italian films, but the American ones are unavoidably cloying and sentimental in a way that must be accepted or ignored to find resonance. Despite being the one showered with praise, The Pursuit of Happyness didn’t quite do enough for me. I appreciated the story and performances, but felt the artifice. For Seven Pounds, however, I didn’t care. The entire film proved one giant manipulative contrivance yet it unexpectedly hit me with depth and power just the same. So when the opportunity to watch his latest Fathers and Daughters arrived, I was optimistic. It looked ripe for that same emotional catharsis and as such possessed the potential to also crash and burn magnificently.

It’s reality lies somewhere in the middle. Brad Desch‘s script is everything that detractors say it is, but

Miracles From Heaven review: “Without its cast would have found its way onto TV.”

Miracles From Heaven review: Another Christian drama hits cinemas, but is it considered and inspiring, or just a cash grab? Miracles From Heaven review

Religious films continue to do fantastic business in the Us, and there’s even a market for them in the UK. We’ve already had God’s Not Dead 2 and Risen hit cinemas this year, and now Miracles From Heaven. Whereas the former two films were based on news stories and biblical texts respectively, Miracles From Heaven is based on a true story and adapted from a memoir written by Christy Beam. Straight off many audience members will decide whether the story is true or not, or in part fabricated, or even if it is downright irresponsible.

Christy Beam’s (Jennifer Garner) daughter Anna (Kylie Rogers) suffers from multiple rare digestive disorders, leaving her in constant pain and unable to eat, instead being fed by tubes.

Miracles from Heaven review – unbelievably preachy Christian drama

When the sick daughter of God-fearing folk recovers, the family attribute it to divine intervention. Jennifer Garner, what are you doing in this?

This stridently Christian film takes a news story from 2011 and turns it into a hectoring preach, with one very curious invention. A 10-year-old girl in small-town Texas named Anna Beam (played here by Kylie Rogers) is suffering from an agonisingly painful and apparently incurable bowel disease. Her devoutly Christian parents Christy and Kevin (Jennifer Garner and Martin Henderson) take comfort in prayer and their local church; desperately, Christy takes Anna to a famous Boston paediatrician who does what can. All seems lost. But then … well, there’s a miracle, which the family unhesitatingly attribute to divine grace. Fine. But wait. There are two miracles here. Because in this film, little Anna shares a hospital ward with the daughter of a Boston journalist named Ben Wexler. Now, Wexler

'Zootopia' Crushes 'Divergent: Allegiant' at the Box Office with $38M

'Zootopia' Crushes 'Divergent: Allegiant' at the Box Office with $38M
For the past six weeks, just two movies have dominated at the box office. First it was 20th Century Fox's Deadpool, whose three-week reign at the top was ended by Disney's Zootopia. According to the estimates from Box Office Mojo, the animated comedy has won its third week in a row, fending off two two new releases, Lionsgate's The Divergent Series: Allegiant and Miracles from Heaven. The Divergent Series: Allegiant was projected to come out on top, but its lackluster opening and a strong third week for Zootopia kept Disney's winning streak alive.

The Divergent Series: Allegiant was projected to take in $37 million in its opening weekend, which would normally result in an easy win, but it all depended on how much Zootopia dropped in its third frame. Last weekend, the animated blockbuster only dropped 31.9%, but this weekend, it only dropped 25.9%, passing the $200 million domestic milestone with $201.8 million. It has

Movie Review – Miracles from Heaven (2016)

Miracles from Heaven, 2016.

Directed by Patricia Riggen.

Starring Jennifer Garner, Kylie Rogers, Eugenio Derbez, Martin Henderson, John Carroll Lynch, Brighton Sharbino, Courtney Fansler, and Queen Latifah.

Synopsis:

A young girl suffering from a rare digestive disorder finds herself miraculously cured after surviving a terrible accident.

As Easter sneaks up on us, studios begin dropping all of their religion oriented stories into cinemas out of good timing. Some of them take their preachy tone to unbearable levels, while very rarely some present an unbiased look at a narrative. Miracles From Heaven isn’t the Bible thumping “all hail Jesus and his unparalleled generosity” tale it’s marketed as, although the movie is most assuredly aimed at that devoted crowd.

Miracles From Heaven ultimately ends up as one of the more tolerable religious flicks in recent memory for quite a few reasons, with the greatest strength surprisingly being its acting. Veteran actress Jennifer Garner in the distressed,

Miracles From Heaven Review

Miracles from Heaven means well, and I mean that sincerely. It promises an uplifting, feel-good story about the nobility of paying-it-forward, doing right by your neighbors and the power of faith and adversity against the hardships of the world. And believe it or not, it doesn’t necessarily feel like a gospel lesson in the process.

Unlike its hokey, sermon-heavy evangelical cinematic peers like God’s Not Dead or Heaven is for Real, there’s an honest, hard-wrought underlining integrity to the film earned by respectable performances from Jennifer Garner, Martin Henderson, Kylie Rogers John Carroll Lynch and Eugenio Derbez.

It’s melodramatic at times, sure. In fact, a lot of the time, as its never truly prone to subtlety. But there’s an occasional moment of raw emotional intensity, or genuinely affecting physical turmoil, that doesn’t often feel as cheap or manipulative as you’d think. In the right contexts,

Miracles From Heaven – The Review

Miracles From Heaven explores issues of family and faith while telling the true tale of Texan Christy Beam (played by Jennifer Garner) that begins when her 10-year old daughter Anna (Kylie Rogers) develops horrible stomach pain. The child is initially misdiagnosed, and when her disorder is discovered to be an incurable, and ultimately fatal, digestive disease, Christy finds herself a fierce advocate for Anna’s health. She travels to Boston frequently to work with Dr. Nirko (Eugenio Derbez), apparently the only specialist in the country who can help. Back home, Christy’s husband Kevin (Martin Henderson) does his best to hold down the fort with their other two daughters while dealing with impending financial stress. After a freak accident involving a hollow tree and a glimpse of God and Heaven, a miracle unfolds that leaves doctors confounded and the Beam’s small-town community inspired.

Miracles From Heaven is as decent and square as it sounds.

Film Review: ‘Miracles From Heaven’

Film Review: ‘Miracles From Heaven’
The very premise of “Miracles From Heaven” offers an argument against its own existence. If there are miracles everywhere we look, who wants to waste time on a movie this middling? Not that faith-based audiences will object to the unapologetic manipulations in such an innocuous slice of inspirational hokum, especially when it’s served up with the utmost sincerity. Instead the frequently fickle crowd should turn out in droves for a pic that’s a spiritual successor in every way to 2014’s sleeper hit “Heaven Is for Real.” This similarly “based on a true story” tale of a child who claims to have visited heaven and lived to share the good news looks perfectly poised for a blessed run at the box office during the same Easter-season window.

Helmer Patricia Riggen’s pic (arriving months after her previous film, “The 33”) may be preaching to the choir, but those unlikely

Can 'Divergent: Allegiant' Stop 'Zootopia' at the Box Office?

Can 'Divergent: Allegiant' Stop 'Zootopia' at the Box Office?
After a three-week stint atop the box office, 20th Century Fox's Deadpool was finally taken down by Disney's Zootopia earlier this month, which is putting together a solid run of its own. The animated comedy will go up against two new releases, Lionsgate's The Divergent Series: Allegiant and Miracles from Heaven in theaters this weekend, but, unlike the Merc With the Mouth, Zootopia isn't expected to reign supreme for a third week in a row. According to the projections at Pro.BoxOffice.com, The Divergent Series: Allegiant should come out on top in its first weekend in theaters. But perhaps not by a strong margin.

The Divergent Series: Allegiant is projected to take in $37 million in its opening weekend, which would normally result in an easy win, but it all depends on how much Zootopia drops in its third frame. Last weekend, the animated blockbuster only dropped 31.9%, and if it drops that much again,

‘Miracles From Heaven’s’ Jennifer Garner Thinks Audiences Will Fall in Love With the Beam Family’s Strength
When the faith-based movie “Miracles From Heaven” had its world bow in Los Angeles on Wednesday at the ArcLight Cinemas, it was an atypical Hollywood premiere. Sure, there was a red carpet and beautifully attired stars, but the general mood and feel of the evening was markedly different. There was a sense of good will and contentment emanating from all players involved in the project about the true story of the Beam family: When Christy Beam (Jennifer Garner) discovers her 10-year-old daughter Anna (Kylie Rogers) has a rare, incurable disease, she becomes a ferocious advocate for her daughter’s healing as she searches for a solution. After Anna has a freak accident, her daughter’s health takes a dramatic turn that leaves medical specialists mystified.
