Intense peril in faith- and fact-based tearjerker.

You don't have to believe in divine intervention to be moved by this story.

Lots of small, potentially affecting dramas buzz around the center of Breakthrough before the movie swats them away to focus on the power of prayer.

An amazing movie based on an amazing true story. Directed by Roxann Dawson to have the most powerful emotional impact. Chrissy Metz and Manuel Ruiz form a bond in their characters that explodes off the screen.

a great cast creates a heartfelt true story film

An edge-of-your-seat, faith-oriented/medical drama, equally riveting in terms of spiritual and worldly concerns.

I found myself being dismissed as a viewer, being directed to put my confidence in a story layered in the superficial aspects of faith, to trust without question that prayer conquers all, even as the film provides no foundation as to why I should.

Breakthrough is an emotionally moving film that faith-based families and individuals are really going to enjoy. Secular audiences may find it to be cheesy.

"Breakthrough" tests how much audiences are willing to believe of a scenario that, though based on a true story, seems too undercooked for any kind of movie treatment.

Produced by Devon Franklin and Steph Curry and starring Chrissy Metz, who is spectacular. Her raw emotions will break your heart into a million pieces and leave you yearning for more.

This inspirational story directed by Roxann Dawson benefits from strong performances and a minimum of treacly preaching.
