Mira Sorvino on faith and 'Dandelion Dust'

When Mira Sorvino had to step into the shoes of a mother who’d given her child up for adoption in the movie “Like Dandelion Dust,” based on the book by Christian author Karen Kingsbury, she found that the experience had a marked effect on her.

Sorvino describes the film, which is “about two families who were at war with each other over one child,” as both beautiful and heart-wrenching, but also an examination of faith.

“The faith element of it [was] definitely strengthened for me even as I was shooting it because I felt like the character sort of needed redemption – needed forgiveness - not only from people in the film, but from God for what she considered to be a horrendous thing that she’d done, which was give up her own child,” Sorvino said.

The actress wouldn't describe the film as "overtly religious," noting instead that “a faith-based audience” could definitely find something that touches them within the film.
