PREVIEW Screening with guest

Maggie Smith turns in a miraculous performance in this heartwarming story of three generations of women who travel to Lourdes.

In the late 1960’s, a group of working-class Irish women win a trip to Lourdes. Each is hoping for a personal miracle, although the miracle may well be the group remaining as friends as old animosities start coming to the surface.

This is one of those heartwarming comedy dramas that the Irish make so well (Sing Street, The Commitments being other examples). How can this charming entertainment miss when you have a cast that includes Kathy Bates (Misery), Laura Linney (The Big C, Love Actually) and the legend that is Maggie Smith, here effortlessly stealing the film with a powerhouse of a performance.

Director Thaddeus O’Sullivan will attend the screening.

“All four ladies bring divine wonders to their performances”
