With a compelling story based on actual events and stars like Oscar-winner Mira Sorvino, Emmy-winner Peter Coyote, child actor Austyn Johnson and Christian actor Kevin Sorbo, The Girl Who Believes in Miracles brought in more than $3 million during its theatrical run earlier this year. Having enjoyed a successful on-demand streaming campaign since then, it is now coming to home entertainment on DVD.

The film stars Johnson as a girl whose prayers are miraculously answered by God, thus impacting her entire small town. As we wrote at the time, screenwriter George Michael Mercier based the story on a real-life miracle involving his granddaughter.


And this film is also memorable for another member of its behind-the-scenes team: 98-year-old first-time producer Larry Jaffe, who did an interview with Christian Film Blog when the film was still in theaters. He, too, believes in miracles based on personal experience and his is quite the story.


If you would like to add The Girl Who Believes in Miracles to your home video library or give it as a Christmas gift, the DVD goes on sale next Tuesday, December 7th, and you can purchase it from Amazon and Walmart, both of which are already offering it on a pre-order basis.
