If you are in need of an uplifting and joyous film, Miracles from Heaven is for you. It’s a story about hope, faith, a miracle from God and a story that Queen Latifah says, “I don’t care how tough you are, you are going to shed a tear on this one.”
Based on the memoir Miracles From Heaven, actress Jennifer Garner plays a tenacious mother, Christy Beam, a Christian who loses faith when her daughter, Anna is diagnosed with a rare fatal disease.
However, along the medical journey, little things occurred that changed the fate for young Anna forever. From meeting a doctor who gave the family optimism, to meeting Queen Latifah’s gregarious character Angela, it was an order of events that eventually led to a miracle from heaven. “My character gets to be somebody really energetic and uplifting and bring in some light to these peoples lives who going through this situation,” Latifah tells HipHollywood.
But what really turned the mother’s faith from dead to working, is when Anna goes to heaven after falling into a tree stump. When she came to, not only was she healed, but had a story to tell. “The movie really did bring me a great amount of perspective,” Garner shares with us exclusively. “It’s a very encouraging film. It’s a film that is full of hope and it’s a film that reminds you of all the wonderful things that are happening around you all the time.”
As for how the film might touch the lives of moviegoers and those who have lost faith, Latifah tells us the movie “may help give them a little more strength and bring them through or remind them why they should keep fighting for it.”
T.D. Jakes, who produced the film, ads, “But even if they don’t, I think they will be more reflective and more appreciative and have more gratitude about the little things that happen to all of us, whether we are church people or not.”
Jake explains, “Sometime we don’t even recognize that the decisions and choose that other people make that extend kindness towards us make a difference in our lives.”
And for Garner, making this film made her “realize I needed to be more of a participant in raising my children with the same kind of values and ground under their feet that I had had.”
Miracles from Heaven hits theaters Wednesday, March 16, 2016.
