Andrew, my 10 year old, and I went to see the pre-screening of Big Miracle this weekend. The movie had us laughing, gasping and yes, I admit even tearing at various points. It’s a movie that emphasizes family and community. Perfect for the kids!
Without giving too much away, I can tell you that the ending was bittersweet. Although, Rachel was not able to do all she hoped to do, she united communities all over the world, changing the playing field for those who care about the environment.
It (the hole) kept getting bigger and bigger until it let the whole world in.
That my dear readers is what passion does!
Let’s talk! Are you planning on seeing Big Miracle? Why or why not?
