Faces an uphill battle to make believers of its audience.
Well-acted but unsatisfying drama about researching a potential saint
...a thinking person's version of the millennial spiritual angst movie
An odd bit of spiritual dithering, not really bad but not really good.
The Third Miracle is a film rife with religious ideology but also steeped in the atmosphere of a classic detective novel.
Os personagens são capazes de levantar questões cujas respostas não são nada fáceis de se encontrar.
An absorbing religious drama.
What's ultimately best about The Third Miracle is how small and quiet a film it is.
[font=Century Gothic]"The Third Miracle" takes place in Chicago, 1979 where Father Frank Shore(Ed Harris) is called back to his duties after an eight-month sabbatical in a flophouse following his debunking of a particularly popular nominated saint, in the process destroying the faith of an entire community. Bishop Cahill(Charles Haid) wants him to investigate the possible sainthood of Helen O'Regan, a parish worker who died several years before. On the anniversary of her death, a statue of the Virgin Mary bled, curing a young girl of terminal lupus and now the parishioners are thinking it was the spirit of Mrs. O'Regan...[/font]
[font=Century Gothic]"The Third Miracle" is about faith but the movie cheats by bringing up the possibility of miracles and sainthood. I liked how it explores the conflict between the poverty of the neighborhood(although they need material help, not just something to believe in) versus the wealth and power of the Catholic Church but there was something off in how Chicago was portrayed.

[font=Century Gothic]Ed Harris gives a monumental performance but he receives little support. Even the usually reliable Anne Heche and Armin Mueller-Stahl do not help. And Charles Haid simply chews the scenery. [/font]
