Sedona News – The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present “The Miracle Club” showing Aug. 25-31 at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.
Set in 1967, “The Miracle Club” follows the story of three generations of close friends, Lily (Maggie Smith), Eileen (Kathy Bates), and Dolly (Agnes O’Casey) of Ballygar, outside Dublin, who win a pilgrimage to the sacred French town of Lourdes, that place of miracles that draws millions of visitors each year.
Just before their trip, their old friend Chrissie (Laura Linney) arrives in Ballygar for her mother’s funeral. The women set out on the journey that they hope will change their lives, with Chrissie, a skeptical traveler, joining in place of her mother. Along the way, old wounds are reopened, forcing the women to confront their pasts even as they travel in search of a miracle.
“Filled with heart and humanity. It is a story of faith and forgiveness, heartbreak and healing, regret and redemption. This magnificent ensemble cast never misses a beat.” — Liz Whittemore, Reel News Daily
“The transcendent performances of this dream cast are alternately hilarious and heartbreaking. We are reminded of Maggie Smith’s extraordinary range.” — Bill Newcott, Saturday Evening Post
“Anything that brings Maggie Smith, Kathy Bates and Laura Linney together for a smart and engaging movie that will lift your spirits these days is a miracle all by itself. ‘The Miracle Club’ is a reason to celebrate this summer, if only for the chance to see a sterling and beloved cast. Smith, Bates and Linney are superb.” — Pete Hammond, Deadline
