  • From Walt Disney Pictures comes MIRACLE, an inspiring family drama that combines hockey and history in retelling the story of one of sports' all-time greatest upsets. In 1980, amidst the tense political climate of the Cold War, Herb Brooks (Kurt Russell) took over as coach of the U.S. Olympic hockey team. With the help of affable assistant coach Craig Patrick (Noah Emmerich), Brooks selected a group of twenty amateur hockey players who faced the daunting task of bringing respectability to their country's floundering program. While Brooks was well aware that his team lacked the talent and experience of the team from Russia, he nonetheless devoted his energy to realizing his lifelong dream: to coach a team to Olympic gold.

    Stepping into the gaudy wardrobe of the legendary Brooks (who was a consultant on the film and died in an automobile accident just after production wrapped), Russell delivers one of his finest performances to date. Surrounded by a cast of unknown young actors, Russell captures the complexities of a man who dared to dream the impossible dream. Director Gavin O'Connor and screenwriter Eric Guggenheim deftly balance the drama of the game itself with the larger political implications the game inspired, celebrating this truly miraculous moment in time.

  • Critic Reviews
    "The movie efficiently delivers the story points."
    New York Times

    "Powered by an excellent Kurt Russell performance, MIRACLE treats old-fashioned, emotional material with an intelligence that respects both the story and the audience."
    Los Angeles Times

    "Like SEABISCUIT, the film ends on a familiar, rousing note of triumph, which is bound to move most audiences with its message of perseverance and belief in one's dreams."
    USA Today

    "[Russell is] wonderfully compelling as a tough, taciturn, driven leader....MIRACLE has a good offensive game as an inspirational how-to about team building."
    Entertainment Weekly

    "MIRACLE succeeds solidly at its main aim: stirringly recreating one of the great sports sagas of all time."
    Box Office

    3 stars out of 4 -- "Kurt Russell is very good...and it hits all the right marks to make this an exciting and heartwarming flick."
