Miracles Are All Around Us
11 January 2009 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

A couple, on the verge of ending their marriage because they cannot have children, find themselves stranded in a village in Mexico where they come to know some of the locals -- and each other --as they prepare for their festival.

This comedy-drama is handled in a very quiet manner and the focus seems to be more on the man, played by Jason Priestley, rather than his wife, played by Nicole Scipione, which keeps the tone a touch lighter than it might have been handled, keeping a good balance between comedy and sadness. Even Cheech Marin plays the local priest largely straight.

While this is not the best TV movie ever made, it is a pretty good effort and worth your time.
