Mar 31, May 4: Movie – ORDINARY ANGELS

OSCAR winner, Hilary Swank leads this drama inspired by the true story of a hairdresser who single-handedly rallies an entire community to help a widowed father save his critically ill young daughter. Ordinary Angels is based on a true story.

Stuff, Waikato Times, Graeme Tuckett 3.5/5 “Ordinary Angels is Swank’s world and everyone else involved is just lucky to be living in it. I walked out of the cinema happy that Swank – and some nicely inventive and understated work from cinematographer Maya Bankovic had salvaged what could have been an unwatchably saccharine couple of hours.”

Sharon Steves (Swank) is a fierce but struggling hairdresser in 1994 in Louisville a small-town in Kentucky, She discovers a renewed sense of purpose after meeting Ed Schmitt (Alan Ritchson), a widower working hard to make ends meet for his two daughters.

One of the daughters is facing a life-threatening illness that would necessitate a liver transplant. Even if a suitable liver did turn up, it would become a race against the clock to get young Michelle Schmitt to the hospital that could perform the surgery, before the liver would go to whoever was next on the list to receive it.

The distance involved was 700 miles and the requisite liver arrived on January 17, just as the Midwest fell into a trough of record-breaking cold weather and snow.

Sharon sets her mind to helping the family and will move mountains to do it. What unfolds is the inspiring tale of faith, everyday miracles, and ordinary angels.
