Shore interviews the woman's daughter, Roxane (Anne Heche), who tells him of the horrible neglect she suffered from the would-be saint.

      Audience Reviews for The Third Miracle

      • May 05, 2007

        Potential. Pure potential. With a storyline so used, one should try to get the movie right. The acting felt very forced, as if they didn't want to do the film, but have to. The only thing I liked was the score by Jan A.P. Kaczmareck. The rest is very dull and without any sense, really.

        [font=Century Gothic]"The Third Miracle" takes place in Chicago, 1979 where Father Frank Shore(Ed Harris) is called back to his duties after an eight-month sabbatical in a flophouse following his debunking of a particularly popular nominated saint, in the process destroying the faith of an entire community. Bishop Cahill(Charles Haid) wants him to investigate the possible sainthood of Helen O'Regan, a parish worker who died several years before. On the anniversary of her death, a statue of the Virgin Mary bled, curing a young girl of terminal lupus and now the parishioners are thinking it was the spirit of Mrs. O'Regan...[/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]"The Third Miracle" is about faith but the movie cheats by bringing up the possibility of miracles and sainthood. I liked how it explores the conflict between the poverty of the neighborhood(although they need material help, not just something to believe in) versus the wealth and power of the Catholic Church but there was something off in how Chicago was portrayed. [/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]Ed Harris gives a monumental performance but he receives little support. Even the usually reliable Anne Heche and Armin Mueller-Stahl do not help. And Charles Haid simply chews the scenery. [/font]
