April 29, Nelson’s 86th Birthday
March 25, 2019, Los Angeles, CA - Spotlight Pictures is set to release Lian Lunson’s much awaited film, WAITING FOR THE MIRACLE TO COME, to international markets. Starring Willie Nelson, Charlotte Rampling, and Sophie Lowe, WAITING FOR THE MIRACLE TO COME is a gorgeous, evocative, and meditative film about faith, love, and fulfillment in spite of loss.
Set in a magical and timeless world reminiscent of an old photograph, WAITING FOR THE MIRACLE TO COME is the story of how Adeline Winter (Lowe), a trapeze artist grieving the death of her father embarks on a journey to find “the Beautiful Place” in Ransom, California. The Beautiful Place Museum, owned and run by Dixie and Jimmy Riggs (Rampling and Nelson). The Riggs have waited for decades at The Beautiful Place, hoping that the daughter they gave up for adoption would come looking for them. Both Nelson and Rampling capture the heartache of loss and the daring of hope while Lowe’s quietly powerful performance pulls viewers along on her pilgrimage.
WAITING FOR THE MIRACLE TO COME was written by Lian Lunson, especially for Willie Nelson. Her long time mentor, Filmmaker Wim Wenders, is an executive producer on the film.
“WAITING FOR THE MIRACLE TO COME is about connections—what they mean, what they feel like,” Lunson says. “It is styled in otherworldliness to bring the supernatural element closer.” Audiences will find themselves transported into this dreamlike world, discovering “gold” in hidden places throughout.
The film features an original song performed by Willie Nelson and written by Bono, who is also an executive producer. WAITING FOR THE MIRACLE TO COME is available for purchase on DVD and digital platforms internationally through Spotlight Pictures.
