5.0 out of 5 stars A Soul-searching Drama that We All Need July 12, 2007
By F. Bank
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I really have never heard of this movie before but it caught my eye, while reviewing selections. This soul-searching story gets to the heart of what life is really all about. We don't need money and material things to be truly happy, which some eventially come to realize in this story. All of us really need what this wonderful story teaches us; that life is too precious and too short to waste it on bitterness, regret, and selfishness. Forgiveness is a powerful and wonderful emotion in the journey of life. And love and faith will conquer all.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful movie! May 18, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I agree with the previous reviewer. Meridith Baxter gave a fine performance but I also think Della Reese was wonderful. I think I was more drawn to her character and the devotion she had to her son, never giving up her hope of finding him. I thought it was a beautiful movie. If you like movies dealing with family issues, this is one you should definitely see.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for the whole family August 30, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie falls under the category of what most people call a 'chick flick', but if you like family-oriented movies, then you'll enjoy this one whether you are a man or a woman. This is a wonderfully-done tale of reconciliation and forgiveness within two different families. Yes, the ending is overly predictable, but that's okay because getting there is so rich and rewarding.

The only thing that I didn't like about the movie was the horribly fake Southern accents that Meredith Baxter and Patricia Heaton used. It's too bad that most people probably think of these two actresses as their characters Elise Keaton and Deborah Barone - those phony accents will likely make you cringe at first if you think of these two characters they played. I got past this little flaw quickly though, and I thoroughly enjoyed the movie. An added plus is the fact that it has zero sex or profanity (in spite of the antagonism between some of the characters - see, Hollywood, it can be done!!).

ADDENDUM: If you enjoy movies with plotlines such as this one, then you may also want to take a look at "A Family Thing" and "Waterproof"; these two movies are, in my opinion, even better than "Miracle in the Woods" (although "A Family Thing" is one of those unfortunate examples of a well-done movie that is marred by needless profanity; "Waterproof," made by a Christian film company, is a safer choice for family viewing).

4.0 out of 5 stars Good movie, [error in product description above!] February 7, 2006
[You got Wanda and Sarah's names backwards in the product description.]

What impressed me in this movie was Meredith Baxter's performance. Family Ties was a fun show and all that, but let's face it, Michael J. Fox MADE the show. :-) Meredith Baxter makes you HATE her character. When an actor can make you HATE them you know they are doing a good job. [what about Tim Roth in Rob Roy!]

Meredith's character SARAH wants to sell the property out from under the Black Woman who has lived there for 50 years (Della Reese). Sarah lies and deceives but still doesn't get her way.

The movie also gives an interesting look at a woman's life of 50 years ago, when women didn't have the choices they have today!

I DO recommend this movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Woodland secrets unfold in family-style entertainment. February 9, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The "Miracle in the Woods" is a family drama that holds your interest until the very end. A hint of mystery stirs the trees around a little cabin in the woods. The cabin dweller, played by Della Reese, holds the answers. Della's character has some memory loss but flashbacks bring past troubles to full circle, in the end. I thought that all the actors did a fine job and the story was one that I will never forget. The ending has some inspirational surprises that I never saw coming. I just love it when you can not figure out exactly where the story is going to take you. I recommend you buy this one and take your family on a cinematic walk in the woods.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful but emotionally over the top June 22, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a movie for sons who lost their mothers, sons who miss their mothers, mothers who miss their sons or lost a son, or anyone who loves having his/her guts ripped out. It's a extraordinarily well-acted and directed story about a young black mother whose son was taken from her when small. Without giving away the ending, it will leave mothers and lost children sobbing. More than a movie, it's an experience. The theme is the amazing love of mothers for their children. Marvelously done. I gave it four stars rather than five only because it's such an extreme tear-jerker.
