The Girl Who Believes in Miracles: an Uplifting Film with a Powerful Message

Friday, April 2, 2021
I just finished watching an advanced screener of the new film, The Girl Who Believes in Miracles, and I can tell you that it's exactly what the world needs right now! If you're looking for a movie that brings you a sense of hope, faith and love, then this one is for you. 

Disclosure: I was able to view an advanced screening of The Girl Who Believes in Miracles in order to bring you my honest review. All opinions are my own.

The Girl Who Believes in Miracles

When young Sara Hopkins hears a preacher say faith can move mountains, she starts praying. Suddenly people in her town are mysteriously healed! Sara discovers her prayers have the power to heal, but learns the cost may be too much– can Sara’s family save her before it’s too late? 

About the Cast

It also stars Austyn Johnson as the main character, Sara Hopkins.

A Christian Film from a 98-Year-Old Jewish First-Time Film Maker

Laurence Jaffe was born in 1923, when one of the first great faith films ('The Ten Commandments') was made. Now, this 98-year-old Jewish gentleman with a career of business success is producing his first film, 'The Girl Who Believes in Miracles.' And the fact that the movie is being released at a time when the world needs to believe in miracles again seems like a bit of divine intervention, no?

The Jersey Momma's Review of 'The Girl Who Believes in Miracles'

Our world is truly filled with chaos and negativity right now, and the concept of this movie brings us back to a point of faith- any faith, no matter what or who you believe in. The idea of trusting your heart, trusting what you believe and having empathy for others- it truly was a welcome and much-needed message. I loved Austyn Johnson's performance, and particularly adored the relationship her character had with her grandfather, played by Peter Coyote. I am not an overly religious person, but certain scenes (Sara describing how she sees God, watching Sara's miracles come true, etc) really brought tears to my eyes. There is also a bit of a twist in the plot about Sara herself, which you'll have to see for yourself, since I don't want to spoil it. 

I wondered why this movie was rated PG, but I suppose it's just because of the subject matter. I think in watching this, kids need to be old enough to understand that not every prayer in real life equals a miracle. Sometimes praying isn't enough to save a life or cure someone of an illness, but it's still important to have faith and believe. The movie teaches about empathy and kindness for all living things, animals and humans alike. All I know is that in a world where horror and action movies dominate as a  source of entertainment, this film was a welcome breath of fresh air and I really appreciated the uplifting message. Go see it for yourself and I'm sure you'll agree.
