Rita Moreno and Rachel Boston Shooting 'A Gift of Miracles' for Hallmark Movies & Mysteries

Rita Moreno
Rita Moreno (West Side Story), one of entertainment’s most respected talents as a winner of all four of the industry’s prestigious awards, an Oscar, Emmy, Tony and Grammy, will co-star with Witches of East End star Rachel Boston in A Gift of Miracles, a Hallmark Movies & Mysteries Original World Premiere in January 2015. The film, which is in production in Vancouver, stars Moreno and Boston as two strangers whose chance encounter through a series of small coincidences gives one young woman a new perspective on life, love and the world’s unexplained marvels.

"The dynamic Rita Moreno is a powerhouse of talent and charm and we are honored and privileged to welcome her to the Crown Media family," said Michelle Vicary, Executive Vice President of Programming, Crown Media Family Networks. "Along with the talented Rachel Boston, the cast for A Gift of Miracles already makes it a must-see movie for our viewers on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries."

In A Gift of Miracles, Boston stars as Darcy Miller, a scientific graduate student and true-blue realist, who comes across a list of belongings the mother she never knew planned to give to close friends and family. To find out more about her, Darcy sets out to fulfill her mother’s wishes only to find herself encountering small-but-miraculous events, each laced with a piece of wisdom that helps guide her in her career and understanding of life. Although challenging her rational views of the world, Darcy’s journey becomes an unexpected gift of self-discovery. When events lead her to the door of a stranger (Moreno) she’s never met, but with whom she shares an unbelievable bond, Darcy discovers there are marvels in this world, even small ones, that defy explanation while being unmistakable in their meaning.
