Manna From Heaven is a comedic fable about what happens when you get a gift from God (a financial windfall), but many years later you find out it was a just a loan and it's due immediately. Once upon a time, many years ago, a neighborhood in Buffalo, NY is mysteriously showered with 20 dollar bills. Theresa, a young girl who everyone thinks is a saint, doesn't have much trouble convincing her loose-knit "family" that the money is a gift from Heaven. Years later, Theresa, who has become a nun, has an epiphany that it is time to pay the money back, so she calls the eccentric group together to repay the "loan." The problem is, nobody wants to give back the money, nobody has the money, they don't know to whom it belongs, and most of them can't stand each other. Along the way, the characters learn about family, romance, reconciliation and redemption, and by working together they begin to realize their full potential.Written by
My wife and I just saw this film several days ago. A marvelous film... with a marvelous cast which probably worked free of charge in this independant production. The film is present day, but has a real mid-60's "feel good" attitude about it. Once upon a time...you may have found Cary Grant, James Stewart, or Audrey/Katherine Hepburn as the leads. We met two of the movie's five sisters who produced it...one of whom portrays a nun in the film...and basically it's narrator. Faye Grant is fabulous...and Wendie Mallick (who I'm not familiar with) stole the show. In the day of productions going way over budget and rarely living up to their expections...this movie is a breathe of fresh air in need of a lot of praise. I only wish I could toot their horn for them! Ralph Parker
