The Miracle: Netflix launches R-rated film with Marvel actress

Netflix has a release coming this week to the streaming platform, which is receiving acclaim. This is The Miracle, starring Florence Pugh (Midsommar, Black Widow).

“The year is 1862. 13 years have passed since the Great Famine in Ireland, and nurse Lib Wright (Florence Pugh) is summoned to a small, fervently devout community to examine one of the young residents for 15 days. Anna O’Donnell (Kíla Lord Cassidy) is 11 years old and claims she has been without food for four months, surviving only on “manna from heaven” ”, begins the official synopsis.

Continues after advertising

“However, his health is deteriorating with alarming rapidity and Lib needs to find out what’s really going on — even if he has to challenge the faith of the entire community to do so,” the synopsis continues.

The Miracle is a drama film directed by Sebastián Lelio from a screenplay co-written by Lelio, Emma Donoghue and Alice Birch.

It is a film adaptation of Donoghue’s 2016 book of the same name.

In addition to Pugh and Cassidy, the cast includes Tom Burke, Elaine Cassidy, Caolán Byrne, Niamh Algar, Toby Jones, Ciarán Hinds, Dermot Crowley, Brían F. O’Byrne and others.

The Miracle is acclaimed and for adults

The film is rated R in the US, meaning it is intended to be watched by adults only.

This age rating was given to the feature film because of its sex scenes. You can also expect violence, and use of profanity.

Overall, it contains some adult material that would not be appropriate for younger audiences to watch.

It is worth noting that the feature film is being very well received by specialized critics, gaining an 85% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with 78 reviews computed.

Milagre arrives on the streaming platform at the usual time for Netflix original releases: at 4 am (Brasilia time).

The Miracle opens on November 16 on Netflix🇧🇷
