‘Breakthrough’ Review: Undeniably Uplifting

BREAKTHROUGH (2019) Review
Directed by Roxann Dawson

There have been numerous faith-based Hollywood film released in the past years. But none that really gave me a heartbreak while watching it. But when I saw the trailer of ‘Breakthrough,’ I was like, “Damn, this is really powerful.”

And it was. At least some parts of it.

The film is your typical Christian family-centric movie. We get to see the Smith family’s daily lives, how their relationship is as a family and to their neighbors and friends. Until that one day that would test their faith in God and believe more in the power of miracles.

Though thinly-written, the effect of ‘Breakthrough’ is undeniable. The moment John falls down that icy lake, you’ll have a heavy heart. But you’ll also be filled with faith and with hope.‬ And that’s the promise of the film.

You get to believe in miracles as well as this is based on a true story. There’s nothing amazing about its storytelling, it’s just that realizing this is fact-based, you start to realize that miracles do happen for some. And how lucky it is for them especially for their family to experience it.
