A cast of Oscar winners and nominees, and a screenplay that isn't afraid to dig beneath the surface, lift this heartwarming comedy-drama into something more than a sweet tale of road trip friendship. The Miracle Club unites three generations of women in shared trauma and watches them unravel before coming together to heal. It's not surprising with the likes of Smith, Bates, and Linney onboard that the acting both tugs on the heartstrings and makes you laugh out loud, while relative newcomer O'Casey proves one to watch, with plenty of screen presence of her own. The fairy tale-like setting of Lourdes is in stark contrast to the small Irish town of Ballygar, the cinematography creating a place of open space and awe next to the oppressive rooms and claustrophobia of the women's lives back home. It's easy to see how things that were kept bottled up suddenly begin to escape as the women find emotional release and a healing that can only come with being set free.
