Event Details

The Brantford Film Group belongs to the TIFF Film Circuit and are able to show films that are often not on offer locally; many are festival prize-winners, but are not the big commercial block busters.  Some are Canadian films and some are foreign films.  Our profits go to local  charities.

The Miracle Club, United Kingdom, 1 hour 31 minutes, PG 13

Three devout Irish Catholic working-class women, Lily (Maggie Smith), Eileen (Kathy Bates), Dolly (Agnes O’Casey), win a church-sponsored Holy Cross Talent Show. Their prize is a free trip to Lourdes, a pilgrimage site in France, famous for its miraculous healing waters. Chrissie (Laura Linney), the daughter of their mutual friend who has just passed away, accompanies them on their journey.  Old resentments and secrets surface, as they struggle to find a miracle to be relieved of the different cross each bears. Is taking the pilgrimage itself, the miracle that can heal old grudges and repair broken relationships? Their chaperone, Father Declan (Mark O’Halloran) points out that sometimes the true miracle is finding the strength to carry on when a miracle doesn’t happen.

In any case, perhaps the biggest miracle for us is the star-studded cast and beautiful cinematography found in this film.
