The Miracle is a wonderfully acted Irish film written and directed by Neil Jordan. Niall Byrne stars as Jimmy, a gifted teenage musician who is mesmerized by an exotic looking woman (Beverly D'Angelo) who is a regular day visitor to the resort town where he lives. Is she his long lost mother or just the figment of his overactive adolescent imagination? As he tries to understand, his relationships with his alcoholic father (Donal McCann) and his best friend (Lorraine Pilkington) are deeply altered. The Miracle is a beguiling blend of fantasy and reality.
