Watch the trailer for the new Chrissy Metz Christian Movie ‘Breakthrough’!
The synopsis for the film is as follows:
BREAKTHROUGH is based on the inspirational true story of one mother’s unfaltering love in the face of impossible odds. When Joyce Smith’s adopted son John falls through an icy Missouri lake, all hope seems lost. But as John lies lifeless, Joyce refuses to give up. Her steadfast belief inspires those around her to continue to pray for John’s recovery, even in the face of every case history and scientific prediction. From producer DeVon Franklin (Miracles from Heaven) and adapted for the screen by Grant Nieporte (Seven Pounds) from Joyce Smith’s own book, BREAKTHROUGH is an enthralling reminder that faith and love can create a mountain of hope, and sometimes even a miracle.
The film is based on true events that happened in 2015. The studio is hopeful that the film will perform similar to DeVon Franklin’s previous film Miracles from Heaven, which made over $60 million on a $13 million budget. Also noteable, Breakthrough is the first movie NBA star Stephen Curry is producing. Curry is also developing faith-based projects under the banner of Unanimous Media, in partnership with Sony Pictures.
Breakthrough is set to be released in theaters on April 17th, 2019. It is distributed by 20th Century Fox and stars Chrissy Metz (This Is Us), Rebecca Staab (The Miracle Season), and Topher Grace (Interstellar). It is directed by Roxann Dawson.
