Bronwyn McKay quote iconIt's not an Oscar-winning film, but it is a cheesy, inspiring tearjerker that you don't need to go to the cinema to see but will still enjoy.

Tomatometer quote iconLike its lead character, Breakthrough is fiercely focused on faith -- but its less subtle elements are balanced by strong performances and an uplifting story.
