Keeping faith the message in Garner’s ‘Miracles’

Printed from:

( — Based on true story of the girl rescued by an out-of-the-blue accident, the word “faith” is often used by the stars and producers in describing the film “Miracles From Heaven.”

Jennifer Garner stars as Christy Beam, a mother whose daughter is struck with a rare, incurable disorder.  Christy goes through a medical maze and questions her faith before some astonishing events unfold before her eyes.

“Faith has been around for as long as humans have been around,” Garner says in the promotional interviews discussing the film. “The idea that there is something larger than you, leading you in some way, this is definitely a movie about that.”

“The message of the film is miracles can happen, miracles do, if you don’t believe in them you might after you watch this movie,” Queen Latifah says.

The actress, who plays ‘Angela’ in the film claims faith is one its principal messages. “Faith, keeping faith. You know, keeping the faith even though it’s being tested through the most challenging things.”

Producer DeVon Franklin says, “I wanted to tell Miracles From Heaven to bring hope, to bring peace, to bring inspiration and to do it in a way that’s commercial and entertaining.”

The movie, based off the book of the same title, is to be released later this month.
