William Hurt Was in a Christian Movie … and It Was Pretty Good [Patheos]
By Paul Asay at Patheos
Most people probably don’t know that he also appeared in a Christian movie—2018’s The Miracle Season, released just a month before he announced his terminal cancer diagnosis. And his turn as grieving father Ernie Found was the film’s spiritual core.
In the movie (based on a true story), Ernie loses his daughter, Caroline, to a terrible traffic accident. When the police come to his door in the middle of the night to tell him, he collapses in one of the officer’s arms. That tragedy is compounded when his wife dies from cancer the day after Caroline’s funeral.
After the tragic death of star volleyball player Caroline "Line" Found, a team of dispirited high school girls must band together under the guidance of their tough-love coach in hopes of winning the state championship.
