Rating: 2.5/4 -- one of the more authentically moving entries in the genre, fueled by a gripping lead performance from "This Is Us" star Chrissy Metz. Full Review

Rating: 2/4 -- Another glib and unconvincing faith-based movie that pushes miracles, spirituality and divine intervention, hoping for box-office gold. A terrific cast is the only thing that saves it from last rites. Full Review

There is literally one moment in which it raises an interesting theological problem, then goes right back to what it was doing before...a movie designed to preach to the choir. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- A bold tale of faith is lifted by some decent performances, however the inert narrative breaks the spell. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- Although some of the film's moment are reminiscent of a Hallmark movie...its good intentions balance out the cringe-worthy. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- Sure, it gets a little bit melodramatic here and there, but what's a good family drama without a little cheese? Full Review

Rating: 1/4 -- It's a harrowing tale that deserves a much better movie than this insipid junk. Full Review

Product Description:

Based on a true story, this biographical drama directed by Roxann Dawson follows the incident of 14-year-old John Smith (Marcel Ruiz,) who falls into a frozen Missouri lake after playing on it with friends. Now unconscious in a hospital bed, John's adoptive parents fret about his chances of survival. But his mother Joyce Smith (Chrissy Metz) won't give up hope and pours all her efforts and prayers into bringing her son back, as she asks God for a miracle.
