Breakthrough Trailer

Faith Remains Strong in “Breakthrough” Trailer

Every year there is at least one spiritually powered film that breaks through the onslaught of mainstream blockbusters to provide a powerful punch - Roxann Dawson’s Breakthrough appears to be that film for 2019.

The film’s just-released trailer is pretty straightforward, showcasing several key plot points as we witness a woman, faced with a dramatic experience regarding her son, turn to her only source of peace in a time of absolute crisis.

Breakthrough follows Joyce Smith, a mother whose adopted son John falls through the ice at a Missouri lake and remains underwater for more than fifteen minutes.  With all hope lost, the distraught mother turns to the only thing she knows in a search for answers, hope, and life: faith.  As the tide shifts and Jon works to fight for his life, her faith remains steadfast, even as every expert, scientist, and nonbeliever prepares her for the supposed inevitable.

Adapted from Joyce Smith’s own book, Breaththrough stars Chrissy Metz, Josh Lucas, Topher Grace, Marcel Ruiz, and Dennis Haysbert.  The film, times to its genre, is set for an Easter release.


About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
