The Divinely Entertaining "The Miracle Club"

Film@BirrTheatre brings you the best of Irish, world and independent cinema on the Theatre’s big screen.

1968. A group of friends in Ballygar, Ireland have 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.

With period clothing, sweeping cinematography and a poignant score, "The Miracle Club" is likely to be just the tonic for anyone looking to escape into an old-fashioned and charming tale.

Join us this Thursday at 8pm for this week's instalment of Film@BirrTheatre.

Run time: 91 minutes Cert: 12A
