About the Film
Set in a timeless fairytale of magical realism, Waiting for the Miracle to Come tells the story of a young trapeze artist who is guided by the spirit of her recently deceased father to find ‘The Beautiful Place’. He believes that all the riches in the world that concern the healing of her and her mother’s heart might be buried out there.
He leads his beautiful daughter, played by Sophie Lowe, on a metaphysical journey- teaching her that love and sacrifice is all that binds us and that death is sometimes not the end of life, but just the beginning.
Jimmy and Dixie Riggs (Charlotte Rampling and Willie Nelson) live at ‘The Beautiful Place’. A broken couple in a small house filled with pieces of wreckage. ‘The Beautiful Place’ is all that links Jimmy and Dixie to the young daughter they tragically gave away. Dark forces threaten the existence of this magical oasis and all the dreams Jimmy and Dixie hold of their daughter finding them.
They take in the mysterious young girl who comes to visit and they ask her to stay, they don’t know her true identity, but she brings them back to life..she gives them hope and faith again in life..and it is through that sweet hope that all their lives will be changed forever.
If A Thing Loves It is Infinite - William Blake
This film is about connections.
What they mean.
What they feel like.
It is styled in otherworldliness to bring the supernatural element closer.
It is not our physical bodies that live eternally, but it is our essence, our energy, our souls.
Every thought we have, every action, lives on and the essence of these is reflected by how we really did connect with that person.
Was it a feeling you got from them?
How long did it take to break through all the humanness?
