Out of last year’s biggest hits, perhaps none is as much of a household name as Miracle in Cell No. 7, which was not only the highest-grossing film of the year but also the third highest-grossing domestic film of all time, trailed only by The Thieves and The Host. No small feat, that’s for sure.... More »
