Set in 1967, THE MIRACLE CLUB follows the story of three generations of close friends, Lily (Maggie Smith), Eileen (Kathy Bates), and Dolly (Agnes O’Casey) of Ballygar, outside Dublin, who win a pilgrimage to the sacred French town of Lourdes, that place of miracles that draws millions of visitors each year. Just before their trip, their old friend Chrissie (Laura Linney) arrives in Ballygar for her mother’s funeral. The women set out on the journey that they hope will change their lives, with Chrissie, a skeptical traveler, joining in place of her mother. Along the way, old wounds are reopened, forcing the women to confront their pasts even as they travel in search of a miracle.

“Filled with heart and humanity. It is a story of faith and forgiveness, heartbreak and healing, regret and redemption. This magnificent ensemble cast never misses a beat… a quietly feminist film that honors the invisible labor of women, the complexities of motherhood, and the belief that change is possible, with or without a miracle.” – Liz Whittemore, REEL NEWS DAILY

“A fantastic cast. A minor miracle. Check your cynicism at the door, and let these talented actors share their stories.” – Clarence Moye, AWARDSDAILY

“The Miracle Club is a reason to celebrate this summer, if only for the chance to see a sterling and beloved cast. Smith, Bates and Linney are superb.” – Pete Hammond, DEADLINE

“A celebration of friendship and forgiveness served up with warmth and gentle humour.” – Allan Hunter, SCREENDAILY

THE MIRACLE CLUB stars 3-time Oscar-nominee Laura Linney (“Ozark”, “The Truman Show”, “The Big C”, “The Savages”) 2-time Oscar winner Maggie Smith (“Downton Abbey”, the “Harry Potter” series, “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel”, “Gosford Park”) and Kathy Bates (“Misery”, “Titanic”, “Fried Green Tomatoes”, “Disjointed”)
