“As a Catholic Priest my orientation as to the definition of bonafide miracle.. has always been: Divine intervention… plus a little more. So in this instance, a timely flat tire might raise a few superstitious eyebrows even for skeptics it’s hardly food for thought for those of us professionally trained to recognize the hand of God at work. But when in the pursuit of miracles, timing is everything. And it was beginning to look as if the hand of God was attached… to a damn good wristwatch.” – Father Michael McKinnon
Number of Times Seen – Twice (4 Oct 2008 and 11 Oct 2020)
Brief Synopsis – Seeking an heir for their fortune, a man and his wife do all they can in order to conceive a child.
Bottom Line – Such a great premise that works so well. The cast is superb and Kenneth Branagh really stands out in the lead role as the narrator. The story unfolds in a great way and They know how to throw in lots of twists and turns along the way that help the story move in directions that are quite unexpected. The premise is quite unique and the way that they present things helps keep things so fascinating to watch unfold. The fact that the story is told in flashback adds so much to the way things play out because of the mystery involved. Recommended!
