PK and I had the chance to attend a screening for the new movie, "Breakthrough" and let me tell you... grab your tissues! Actress Chrissy Metz of "This is Us" is unbelievably remarkable as she plays Joyce Smith, a mother who prayed for her son to come back to life, and is based on a TRUE STORY!
Not going to lie, I let Chrissy know that though she may not be aware... we spend every Tuesday night together when I watch "THIS IS US!"
Chrissy and movie producer DeVon Franklin stopped by the studio to discuss their latest film. Some other topics include life advice for anyone trying to get into Hollywood, what Chrissy thinks when she watches herself back on the big screen and more!
Check out our full interview below;
DeVon also mentions Chrissy's book --- you can buy it here!
YouTube: "BREAKTHROUGH" is based on the inspirational true story of one mother’s unfaltering love in the face of impossible odds. When Joyce Smith’s adopted son John falls through an icy Missouri lake, all hope seems lost. But as John lies lifeless, Joyce refuses to give up. Her steadfast belief inspires those around her to continue to pray for John’s recovery, even in the face of every case history and scientific prediction.
Breakthrough stars actress Chrissy Metz, who also appears on the film's soundtrack, Topher Grace, Josh Lucas, Marcel Ruiz and Dennis Haysbert.
Chrissy performs "I'm Standing With You," written by songwriter Diane Warren for the film.
Breakthrough is rated PG and opens in theaters on April 17th.
