Breakthrough — Official Trailer


added: Wed, Dec 5th '18

"This Is Us" star Chrissy Metz plays a religious mother who believes in the healing power of prayer in the official trailer for the new faith-based drama "Breakthrough."

The film is based on the inspirational true story of Joyce Smith, a Missouri housewife who asked her small-town community to pray for her comatose teenage son after he accidentally fell through a frozen lake and was immediately declared clinically dead.

Also, starring Josh Lucas (Yellowstone), Topher Grace (BlacKkKlansman), Mike Colter (Luke Cage), Marcel Ruiz (One Day at a Time), Sam Trammell (True Blood) and Dennis Haysbert (24, The Unit), the drama is marking the feature directorial debut of actress-turned-TV helmer Roxann Dawson (House of Cards, The Americans).

The film was adapted for the screen by Grant Nieporte (Seven Pounds) from Joyce Smith's own best-selling memoir "The Impossible: The Miraculous Story of a Mother's Faith and Her Child's Resurrection."

"Breakthrough" is coming to theaters on Easter 2019.

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.
