Storyline

Teenaged Casey never knew what a miracle could do... until she created one. Frustrated with her life, Casey throws a coffee at the wall of the Krowne Donuts where she works ... and the splash (with a little help from Casey) seems to resemble an image of Jesus Christ. Overnight, Casey finds herself becoming the ring-master of a growing faith circus: the parking-lot teems in new customers, 24-7 news media arrive. Casey's hoax changes everything: for her strict, fundamental boss, her sweet, believing boyfriend, her "Doubting Thomas" local priest, and, most importantly, for her Dad ... Haunted by the aftermath of a family tragedy, Casey's Dad is letting everything around him go: his mortgage payments, his business, everything. Casey's hoax might be just the "divine intervention" which her Dad needs ... but the results are not at all what she expected. Written by Anonymous

Cute on the surface, but ugly in essence
23 January 2013 | by (Montreal) – See all my reviews

This film is an example of what goes wrong when a society becomes tolerant of intolerance. It leads to moronic behaviours, institutional abuse, and poor unoriginal film-making passing itself off as something cute and original, because the institutions funding these films need to justify their belief systems.

Sad sad sad.

This could have been a good film, the story's potential was there, if the film-makers had just demonstrated some guts and originality, to step out of the bounds of group think and say something thoughtful. But no, all it had to say was platitudes.

There are days when the anglo-Canadian film industry is just depressing beyond belief, making films for the sheer sake of making a film, without any intent to have any impact in anyone's life.
