For 12 year old, TALIESIN JONES (JEAN-PAUL MACLEOD), life on a Welsh hill farm is full of uncertainty. His Mum (GERALDINE JAMES) leaves home and Taliesin is left behind with his distracted father (JONATHAN PRYCE), his sullen brother (MATTHEW RHYS) and his own quest for answers. After seeing his elderly, piano teacher Billy Evans (IAN BANNEN) perform a miracle, Taliesin is inspired in his search for answers to life's biggest questions, for he needs a miracle of his own. Billy strikes a deal with Taliesin: if he continues to practice the piano, he will give him the key to miracles. Belief… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A sweet, tender sermon about a 12-year-old Welsh boy more curious about God than girls, who learns that believing in something does matter."
‑ Jane Sumner, Dallas Morning News
"Certainly warm-hearted and well-intentioned...but its eagerness to be uplifting is ultimately more calculated than inspiring, and its message is more than a little muddled."
‑ Frank Swietek, One Guy's Opinion
"too many scenarios in which the hero might have an opportunity to triumphantly sermonize, and too few that allow us to wonder for ourselves if things will turn out okay."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"A film about a young man finding God that is accessible and touching to the marrow."
‑ Melanie McFarland, Seattle Times
"The issue of faith is not explored very deeply"
‑ Christopher Null, Filmcritic.com
"Succumbs to the same kind of maudlin, sentimental mysticism that mars the Touched by an Angel school of non-God spiritual-uplift movies."
‑ Steven Rosen, Denver Post
"Screenwriter Maureen Tilyou, director Martin Duffy and an extremely competent cast handle the controversial aspects of the topic in an even-handed manner."
‑ Susan Green, Boxoffice Magazine
