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

small town ..big God..
15 December 2010 | by See all my reviews

A NEW Christmas Story: I liked this movie a lot. Great little story about a religious hoax in a little Canadian town. Some really solid performances anchor a charming equation between a clever young girl, her dad, her boss, and her fella... I enjoyed the Stephen King-esquire villainy of "Uncle Bob"(having done retail in my younger years) and the unpredictability of the rest of the characters - they're painted as "stereotypes" on first glance 'til they speak and act like very real humans. Good writing and good pacing lead you to an ending you can't see coming - just like life. Callum Keith Rennie has become one of my favourite actors(Californication - c'mon..). He plays a man I've met many times ...clinging to old thoughts ...the past, and he is great. Martha MacIssac holds the film together with her Casey McMullen ...a consistent and smart performance, but Ricky Mabe kinda stole the show for me ...a pitch-perfect performance of that sensitive jock - a nice reminder that young or old - everyone stands for something. Andy Bush is really good and Matt Amyotte is hilarious. Do yourself a favour and watch this movie... Show a little faith - it's well worth it.
