The Miracle Club (12A)
Our Maggie Smith series reaches its grand finale with this heartwarming and inspiring story of forgiveness, friendship, and family set in the late ‘60s.
Maggie Smith, Kathy Bates and Agnes O’Casey star as three close friends from Ballygar, Dublin, who have always dreamt of going to Lourdes. When a chance to win a pilgrimage to the sacred French town arises, Lily (Smith), Eileen (Bates) and Dolly (O’Casey) seize the opportunity to escape.
Having never even left Dublin – let alone Ireland – the journey provides them with an opportunity to let their hair down, celebrate life and delight in some sweet independence. The trip also gives them a chance to reflect on their own lives, with each of the women in search of their own personal miracles.
But when they are joined by Chrissie (Laura Linney), recently returned from a decades-long exile in the USA, old wounds are reopened, and bitter truths exposed. Forced to confront each other and their pasts, the friends realise that the miraculous can be found closer to home than they had believed.
Directed by Thaddeus O’Sullivan.
