Tis the season for miracles, and on December 9th, The Greatest Miracle will begin appearing in theaters across 50 US cities.
Originally released in Mexico on October 14th, The Greatest Miracle is Mexico’s first 3D animated feature film. Directed by Bruce Morris (Disney’s Pocahontas, The Little Mermaid, The Princess and the Frog, and Hercules) with the musical score composed by Mark McKenzie (Spiderman and Ice Age: The Meltdown), The Greatest Miracle has received praise from audiences and critics alike, becoming the second highest per screen average during its opening weekend.
The film’s score has received much praise. Jonathan Broxton of Movie Music UK (http://moviemusicuk.us/) said, “McKenzie writes some of the most beautiful, lyrical and emotionally resonant music ever written for film. Film scores like this don’t come along too often – music so passionate, so moving and so heart-warming. ” The film’s score won the Hollywood Music in Media Awards’ “Best Indie Score” award for 2011 last month.
The Greatest Miracle portrays the story of three strangers at Catholic Mass one morning. Monica is a widowed mother, struggling to sustain her home and raise her son, Diego. Don Chema is a bus driver who is dealing with his child’s incurable illness. Dona Cata is an elderly woman who seeks peace. Though these three individuals are facing different situations, they each meet their guardian angel and are given the gift to see the world through spiritual eyes and take full account of their blessings.
Producer Pablo Barroso said, “I am very proud of our team’s effort and the industry recognition our film has received so far. We did not skimp on putting the best ingredients into the making of The Greatest Miracle. Audiences in Mexico were inspired to consider their lives from a spiritual perspective. We hope people in the United States will react similarly, especially since we’re entreating the holiday season.”
