What could be better at this time of year, just before Easter Sunday, than the Christian-themed film “Breakthrough?” This uplifting, faith-affirming film stars Topher Grace (“Blackkklansman”), Chrissy Metz (“This Is Us”) and Marcel Ruiz and is based on a true story from St. Charles, Mo., in 2015.
The story is an amazing and inexplicable one, but unfortunately, the writer felt the need to hit you over the head with its messages of “have faith” and “the power of love.”
It’s a heavy-handed portrayal of these real life events as you always feel that you are watching a movie or even a play where the director is telling her actors, “Everyone look happy to be in school and you love each other!”
