Movies about Family, Friendship & Unsung Heroes


The Miracle Club 2023

Movies that feature superheroes saving the planet are exciting and visually amazing.


But sometimes we need movies about a different type of hero: The ordinary person who raises children, keeps a marriage together, or faces a painful past.


These are some of the things we regular folks deal with daily, so when we see them on the big screen, they speak to us in a personal way superhero movies may not.


Look at The Miracle Club, starting tomorrow at the Jewel Theatre. This is a film about four Irish women who travel to Lourdes, France, in search of a miracle. During their journey, they make peace with some difficult truths - and each other.


Movies like these, about family & friendship, remind us of what’s important, especially when the world feels unsettled.


They show us how valuable relationships are, and why they're worth the trouble.


Don't get us wrong: Movies about larger-than-life warriors are a lot of fun. It's that sometimes we need a movie where the seemingly small things are heroic and brave, where we can celebrate the everyday miracles in life.


The Miracle Club shows at Stettler's Jewel Theatre October 27 - November 2. Please check jeweltheatre.ca for showtimes before arriving at the theatre.


See you at the movies!
