‘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? Limitless

Review of the TV show "Limitless"

What if you could take a “nutritional supplement” that would allow you to remember everything you’ve ever learned? A small, see-through pill that would allow you to remember events, like existing in your mother’s womb that would be impossible to do otherwise. Would you take it? These are the question that Brian Finch (Jake McDorman) has to answer for himself in the new CBS action series, Limitless.

Based on 2011 feature film with the same name and premise, Finch is given a sample of the drug NZT from a friend of his and his life will never be the same. While riding on the high of the pill, Finch is able to do more than any human can, but when it wears off, it’s the worst hangover ever. Soon, Finch learns that by taking the drug, he becomes part of a unique club of sorts – a club where the other members taking the same drug are being killed off. Add this situation to the stress of learning that his father Dennis (Ron Rifkin) will die if he isn’t given a new kidney stat and that fact that the FBI is looking for him and you will find one troubled man. Fortunately for him, he has found a friend in FBI agent Rebecca Harris (Jennifer Carpenter) and Senator Edward Morra (Bradley Cooper, reprising his role from the film).
