Written and directed by Rich Correll (“Hannah Montana”, “Fuller House”) and produced by Laurence Jaffe, “The Girl Who Believes in Miracles” tells the story of a young girl named Sara who takes God at His word and prays for people in her small town to be healed. The faith-based film stars Oscar winner Mira Sorvino (“Mighty Aphrodite”, “Do You Believe?”), Austyn Johnson (“The Greatest Showman”, “The Post”), Kevin Sorbo (“Let There Be Light”, “God’s Not Dead”), and Emmy Award winner Peter Coyote (“E.T. The Extraterrestrial”, “A Walk To Remember”).
“The Girl Who Believes in Miracles” (former working title “The Mustard Seed”) was filmed in Oklahoma throughout the communities of Guthrie, Mustang, Bethany and Luther in September 2018. The film created 374 local jobs and a had direct impact of over $3 million in Oklahoma throughout the production process. Additionally, “The Girl Who Believes in Miracles” utilized the music incentive afforded by the Oklahoma Film Enhancement Rebate Program for productions that record or license music in Oklahoma, working with Castle Row Studios in Oklahoma City to record the film’s musical score.
“Working on this film was an absolute dream. We were able to bring nearly 40 of Oklahoma’s most talented musicians into one room and create something truly special,” said Garrett Starks, owner of Castle Row Studios. “I can’t wait for people to hear the magic that lives within this score. The composer, Craig Flaster, brought incredible vision, and our Oklahoma musicians made it come to life.”
“The Girl Who Believes in Miracles” is showing statewide at several select theatres in Oklahoma City, Lawton, Ada, Sapulpa, Stillwater and Yukon. Audiences can also visit the film’s official website to request a screening in their communities.
