MIRACLES FROM HEAVEN cover image Click to play video trailer
I love this movie! Miracles from Heaven is very inspirational, very religious and all about miracles. It really makes you think about all the miracles that are happening in your life.

Miracles from Heaven is about a young girl named Anna Beam (Kylie Rogers) who has a very rare stomach disorder. Her family pulls out all the stops to help her. When an amazing event happens it changes everything.

This is a real story and it is very heartwarming. The Beam family's faith in God is undeniable. They are very religious and go to church every Sunday. Even if you are not really religious, I still think that you would enjoy this movie.

All of the characters in Miracles from Heaven are likable, but especially Christy Beam (Jennifer Garner). She is very believable and makes you feel really sad when she is sad and happy when she is happy. She is a mom that a lot of people would want to have as their own, because she would never give up and she works very hard. The dad, Kevin Beam (Martin Henderson) is a very good dad and cares a lot about his kids.

My favorite character is Dr. Nurko (Eugenio Derbez). He is very funny and he works very hard to make all the kids in the hospital happy. And if I was ever really sick I would want a doctor like him.

My favorite scene is at the end of the movie where it is showing all the miracles that happen in their lives. This scene really makes you think about what miracles could be happening to you and it makes you feel great about other people around you.

The moral of the story is never to give up on hope. Even though Anna struggles and she ends up in the hospital many times, her family never gives up and tries to help her. You learn to love Anna and root for her along the way. This movie made a lot of people in the audience cry and tear up.

I rate Miracles from Heaven five out of five stars because it is very inspirational and it makes you really think about what miracles you could be having in your life. I recommend the ages 7 to 18 because there are some surgical procedures, but they're not that graphic. Go see this movie on March 16 in theaters near you.

Whether your are religious or not, this film speaks about the power of faith and perseverance. Jennifer Garner plays the mom and, as the only high profile star, definitely lends a credible performance that pulls the whole film together. Kylie Rogers who plays the young girl also delivers a believable performance that brought a tear to my eye more than once. Martin Henderson plays the dad with great conviction as do the performances of Brighton Sharbino and Courtney Fansler who portray Anna's sisters. The rural Texas setting, the scenes inside the church and around the Beams home all seem very authentic. Eugenio Derbez steals the show with his portrayal of Dr. Nurko, a slightly kooky yet brilliant pediatrician who tackles the most difficult cases. I took my husband to see this with me and we both needed a small box of tissues to deal with the tragic circumstances. But, there is a happy ending and it renewed my faith in miracles. Highly recommended.
MIRACLES FROM HEAVEN is based on the incredible true story of the Beam family. When Christy (Jennifer Garner) discovers her 10-year-old daughter Anna (Kylie Rogers) has a rare, incurable disease, she becomes a ferocious advocate for her daughter's healing as she searches for a solution. After Anna has a freak accident, an extraordinary miracle unfolds in the wake of her dramatic rescue that leaves medical specialists mystified, her family restored and their community inspired. Starring Jennifer Garner, Kylie Rogers and Martin Henderson
