Storyline

Bettina Lloyd, a journalist whose career never really took off, is sent by her editor in chief to her small-town birthplace in Ohio, where the Roman Catholic church is taking serious the claims for a series of alleged medical miracles. Of course she also gets in contact again with the people from her past, such as her brother Ben, a school coach, and her father, who feels that his daughter should concentrate on starting a family to give him grandchildren, not on a career, that's for the son.

The Lord Moves in Mysterious Ways
11 September 2013 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Manhattan magazine reporter Samantha Mathis (as Bettina "Betty" Lloyd) is given a tough assignment. The 33-year-old is sent to her small Grandville, Ohio town, after an emotionally driven 15-year absence. She is to investigate reports of healing miracles being performed through her comatose former high school boyfriend Stefano DiMatteo (as Paolo Toratelli), assisted by his mother Maria Ricossa (as Maria). Skeptical due to a "dark secret" in her past, Ms. Mathis finds her family dealing with health issues...

Heart, cancer and alcohol problems are involved in the lives of papa Stephen McHattie (as Mike), mama Nicky Guadagni (as Myra) and brother Dan Petronijevic (as Ben). Mathis debates the existence of God with handsome young priest Peter Mooney (as Steve Flannagan). She points out what God is not responsible for healing and notes where God is not found, without considering the deity may be targeting Mathis herself. "Absolution" is no revelation. With the best-written role, Ms. Guadagni shines.
