1968. A group of friends in Ballygar, Ireland has one tantalising dream: to win a pilgrimage to the sacred French town of Lourdes. After a riotous church talent competition, it looks like they will get their miracle. But when they are joined by a figure from the past, deep wounds are re-opened and bitter truths exposed.

As they confront one another, these women realise that the healing they have all been looking for is right in front of them: in the strength of their friendships and unshakeable togetherness. Starring an unbelievably impressive cast (Laura Linney, Kathy Bates, Maggie Smith, Stephen Rea) The Miracle Club is a joyous, uplifting, inspirational tribute to the reformative power of friendship.

‘’The Miracle Club is a sincere and meritorious effort, enhanced by John Conroy’s beatific cinematography that vividly captures the quiet stoicism of rural Ireland’’
- Rex Reed, Observer

‘’… worth checking out for the ensemble alone..’’
- Peter Debruge, Variety
