The Times 

At the Liberty:"Ordinary Angels"

 

March 14, 2024



DAYTON — “Ordinary Angels” is based on a remarkable true story. It centers on Sharon Steves (Hilary Swank), a fierce but struggling hairdresser in small-town Kentucky who discovers a renewed sense of purpose when she meets Ed Schmitt (Alan Ritchson), a widower working hard to make ends meet for his two daughters. With his youngest daughter waiting for a liver transplant, Sharon sets her mind to helping the family and will move mountains to do it. What unfolds is the inspiring tale of faith, everyday miracles, and ordinary angels.

This movie has received good reviews, with 85% favorable from Rotten Tomatoes critics and 99% from audiences. That website’s audience review is “‘Ordinary Angels’ is an engrossing fact-based story that packs in some humor, some intense drama, and enough tears to take up a box of tissues.” This movie is rated PG for thematic content, brief bloody images, and smoking. Runtime is 130 minutes (with bonus content).

Please note: the weekend of March 22, the Liberty Theater presents a live, locally produced variety show titled “Songs of the Wild”. This wildlife themed show will have you singing and clapping along with some of your favorite tunes, such as Blackbird (by The Beatles), Crocodile Rock (by Elton John), and Dog Days are Over (by Florence and the Machine). It has locally talented dancers, musicians, actors and more in numbers from a wide range of genres, such as pop, rock, country and classical.

You won’t want to miss this fun-filled show directed by Jae Goodridge and Samantha Steinhoff. See the Liberty Theater for more information about performance days, times, as well as seat reservations and prices.
