Miracles from Heaven, based on the true story of the Beam family, premieres nationwide this weekend.
When Christy Beam (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.
Anna has spent most of her childhood in and out of hospitals with a rare and incurable digestive disorder that prevented her from ever living a normal, healthy life. One sunny day when she is able to go outside and play with her sisters, she falls three stories headfirst inside an old, hollowed-out tree, a fall that may well have caused death or paralysis. Implausibly, she survives without a scratch. While unconscious inside the tree, with rescue workers struggling to get to her, she visits heaven. After being released from the hospital, she defies science and is inexplicably cured of her chronic ailment. Her cure leaves medical specialists mystified, her family restored and their community inspired.
Several resources are available for the movie, including the book and an outreach church kit. In addition, the site spotlights several important themes from the movie, including everyday miracles, wrestling with doubt, walking with doubt and marriage and parenting.
In addition to Garner and Rogers, the movie stars Martin Henderson, John Carroll Lynch, with Eugenio Derbez and Queen Latifah. It is directed By Patricia Riggen, written By Randy Brown, and produced by Joe Roth, T.D. Jakes and DeVon Franklin and executive produced by Matthew Hirsch, Derrick Williams, and Zack Roth.
