Starring: Hilary Swank, Alan Ritchson, Nancy Travis, Tamala Jones, Amy Acker
Drama directed and co-written by Jon Gunn. Inspired by a true story, Ordinary Angels (2024) centers on Sharon Stevens (Hilary Swank), a struggling hairdresser in a small-town 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.
We’ll add the best quotes once the movie is released and we’ve had a chance to watch it, but for now, here’s a small selection.
Sharon: My name is Sharon. I’m just a ticked off hairdresser, and I’m an alcoholic with a splitting headache.
All: Hi, Sharon.
Gabe: My advice? Find a reason to be here that’s bigger than you are.
Sharon: I read about this family in the paper. I think this is it.
Rose: [to Sharon] You just wandered into a lady you never met before’s funeral? Why exactly?
Sharon: [referring to Michelle] Thinking about that little girl, she’s five, and she already needs a liver transplant.
Ashley: Dad. We have a situation.
Michelle: [we see her with lipstick all over her lips and face] I want to look pretty for Mommy!
Ed: Well, maybe just little off the cheeks.
Pastor Dave: God is here with us right now, and we are here with you.
Sharon: Something about that little girl without a Mama, sick. And the family’s bled dry from all the hospital bills. I think I’m supposed to help.
Sharon: Hi! Sharon. Remember me?
Ed: Yes, ma’am.
Sharon: [referring to the envelope filled with cash I just wanted to come by and give you this.
Barbara: I just made dinner if you want to stay?
Sharon: Love to.
Ed: [referring to inviting Sharon for dinner] Mom, what are you doing? I’ve met this woman. She’s a mess.
Barbara: Perfect, she’ll fit right in.
Barbara: [referring to Sharon] So she’s going to help out three nights a week.
Sharon: Four hundred thousand plus in medical bills. All three credit cards maxed out. And your income’s only thirty-six hundred a month?
Ed: Yes, ma’am.
Sharon: That’s not good, Ed.
Ed: No, ma’am.
Sharon: I’m going to put together a press kit for corporate donations, that kind of thing.
Sharon: I’ve owned four small businesses. I’m good at plenty of things. Taking no for an answer ain’t one of them.
Ed: We don’t need to be running around worrying about money and bills right now. I just want to be with my family.
Sharon: This is about saying yes and then figuring out how.
Ashley: Daddy is in over his head.
Virginia: You’re asking us to reduce the family’s medical bills due to hardship?
Sharon: No. I’m asking you to erase them. All of them. Was that funny?
Ed: I’m not comfortable with this. I’m her father, and I’m supposed to be the one taking care of her.
Sharon: You’re going to have to get comfortable being uncomfortable. Because this ain’t about you, it’s about your little girl.
Michelle: Daddy! My belly hurts.
Ed: Oh, you want to go on an adventure?
Dr. Ghorbani: Michelle will need to fly seven hundred miles to the children’s hospital immediately. I’ve had patients who have missed that window because they couldn’t get a flight.
Ed: Are you telling me we need a plane now? How exactly do you recommend we get a plane, Doc?
Sharon: Don’t lose your faith over this.
Sharon: [to Ed] I’ll get you a plane. I promise.
Sharon: We are going to save this girl, you hear me?
Barbara: The roads haven’t been plowed. The airports closed. Honey, listen, it’s too dangerous.
Ed: I have to make it. This is our last chance. If we don’t take it, Michelle dies.
Ed: You want to go on an adventure?
Sharon: Someone’s got to do something. Someone’s got to fight for her.
Pastor Dave: We’re going to need a lot of shovels.
Rose: [referring to Michelle] How did it become your responsibility to save her?
Sharon: Because I’m here. Because I can!
Reporter: But one thing I know for sure, that little girl now has the entire city rooting for her.
Ed: I want you to know something. You’re not just worthy, Sharon. You’re a miracle.
