When John Smith (Marcel Ruiz), the 14-year-old son of Joyce Smith (Chrissy Metz), falls through the ice on a frozen lake in Missouri, despite almost 30 minutes of CPR, he is pronounced dead. As John remains motionless for almost an hour in the hospital, Joyce prays at her son’s bedside and is stunned when she discovers his heart has begun to beat again.

With the help of the town’s new hip pastor Jason Noble (Topher Grace), Joyce struggles to understand this unbelievable phenomenon and the power of faith that brought her son back to her once again.

Based on Joyce Smith's 2017 memoir, The Impossible: The Miraculous Story of a Mother’s Faith and Her Child’s Resurrection.

  • 1 star "Boring"
  • 1 star "Unfortunately this movie could have sent it's evangelical message in a 30 minute documentary. Instead we were dragged through heavy unrealistic religious melodramatic propaganda. Don't waste your time."
  • 1 star "This movie is the equivalent of a religion salesperson knocking on your door, always accompanied by a small child for abuse protection. In that scenario you would politely state you were not interested and send them on their way. In a movie theater, there is no escape from this electronic form of religious propaganda."
