Goofs

There is a scene where the main characters visit the aquarium (presumably in Boston as Christy and Anna are awaiting a call from Boston Children's Hospital) and a whale shark is seen inside a large tank. There are no whale sharks at the Boston Aquarium- in fact, the aquarium where this scene was filmed- Atlanta Georgia- does not look at all like Boston's aquarium. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Christy Beam: [narrating] When I was growin' up, people didn't really talk about miracles. I'm not sure I understood what they were or if I believed in them. A miracle is defined as something not explicable by natural or scientific laws. But then how do you explain it? How does it happen? Who or what is behind it?

Very moving and well done
16 July 2016 | by pboisvert-11876See all my reviews

This movie is very stirring and emotionally moving. It really captures the emotions and the crisis of faith that must be the experience of those who must watch their children suffer in any way.

The directing is very good and the cinematography is well done. When I started watching the movie I expected the characters to be somewhat plastic. To my delight, this was not the case. The characters seemed real, human, and relatable.

However, it is the performance of Jennifer Garner as Christy Beam (the Mom) and Kylie Rogers as Anna Beam (the daughter) that put it over the top.

I very much recommend this movie
