Miracle at St. Anna

Miracle at St. Anna Brief Information

Miracle at St. Anna is a 2008 AmericanItalian war film based on the eponymous 2003 novel by James McBride, who also wrote the screenplay. The film was directed by Spike Lee, and features an ensemble cast that includes Derek Luke, Michael Ealy, Laz Alonso, Omar Benson Miller, Pierfrancesco Favino and Valentina Cervi. Miracle at St. Anna is primarily set in Italy during World War II as four Buffalo Soldiers of the 92nd Infantry Division seek refuge in a small Tuscan village, where they form a bond with its residents. The story is presented as a flashback, as one survivor reflects on his experiences in a frame story set in 1980s New York. Several real-life events during the war, such as the Sant'Anna di Stazzema massacre, are re-enacted, placing Miracle at St. Anna within the genre of historical fiction.

Lee first learned of the novel in 2004 and approached McBride with the idea of a film adaptation. In Europe, the film's development attracted the attention of Italian film producers, and Lee's reputation as an acclaimed filmmaker helped secure the film's $45 million budget. A majority of the film was shot in Italy, on several locations affected by World War II. Other filming locations included New York, Louisiana and The Bahamas. Terence Blanchard composed the film score, and the visual effects were created by Industrial Light & Magic.
