Plot Summary
In a small East Texas town, the inhabitants are either bored, self-righteous, scheming or all three. It seems nothing occurs to shake their daily routines. However, all of that changes when Mother Harper (Cynthia Dorn) finds a curious thing imprinted on her screen door: the image of Jesus Christ. With talk of a miracle circulating high and low, the once-obscure town attracts all kinds of fanatics and believers, while locals from the mayor (Richard Dillard) on down are affected.

  • It's a knowing, dare I say sweet, little film that takes pains to let the characters speak for themselves, never rallying behind an implicit religious message, which may be the best message of all. show more

  • A slyly observed slice of Americana. show more

  • The cinematography, by Dan Stoloff (Tumbleweeds, Miracle), is beautiful throughout, but the individual stories occasionally verge toward silliness...Still, there's an affectionate authenticity here that Hollywood baloney like "Crash" can't touch. show more
