‘This is Us’ Chrissy Metz Stars in Upcoming Faith-Based Film

Miracles still happen. That is the message of the faith-based film, Breakthrough starring This is Us’ Chrissy Metz. Based on Joyce Smith’s book, The Impossible: The Miraculous Story of a Mother's Faith and Her Child's Resurrection, Breakthrough tells the true story of an event that happened just four years ago.

Metz plays Smith whose 14-year-old son falls through the ice of a Missouri lake. He was trapped under water for 15 minutes and even after he was rescued, he had no pulse for 43 minutes. All seemed lost and Smith was told to come in and say her goodbyes to her son as there was no hope for the boy. But Smith refused to give up and continued to pray for her son’s complete recovery, even in the face of every case history and scientific prediction. Not only did her son come back to life, but he is alive today telling his story.

Directed by Roxann Dawson and produced by DeVon Franklin (Miracles from Heaven), Breakthrough also stars Josh Lucas, Topher Grace, Mike Colter…

Worth Watching? 'Heroes Reborn'

Review of "Heroes Reborn."
Zachary Levi in a very "un-Chuck-like" role in Heroes Reborn (NBC)
The NBC show, Heroes, ran on the network for four years from September 2006 to February 2010. Like Marvel’s X-Men comic series, the show focused on everyday people who discovered that they had extraordinary abilities. When the show premiered, it grabbed about 14.3 million viewers making the series the highest rating for an NBC drama debut in five years and kept high ratings for the first year. Unfortunately, the show’s viewer base got smaller each year that the show was on. Most fans and critics agree that the show’s first season was the best and was the most coherent, but somewhere the writers and producers lost their way killing off older characters and bringing in new ones.

Now, six years later, NBC is giving the show another try rebranded as Heroes Reborn. Whether or not the series will be graced with more seasons to come remains to be seen. The good news is that this fall’s series is led by Tim Kring, the creator of the original series and contains a few characters from the first series, however, I wouldn’t get too attached to them. The bad news is that the show tries to bridge the gap from the old series to the new. Long time fans will be thrilled with the end result, but there isn’t enough information given from the old show for new watchers to jump in comfortably without getting completely lost. They may abandon the show altogether leaving it with low ratings once again. But that is just speculation.
