The Secret: Dare to Dream is a romantic drama based on the groundbreaking 2006 book by Rhonda Byrne which went on to become a global phenomenon, empowering millions of people to lead happier and more fulfilled lives. 

Directed by Andy Tennant (Sweet Home Alabama) it centres on Miranda Wells (Katie Holmes), a hard-working young widow struggling to raise three children on her own. 

A powerful storm brings a devastating challenge and a mysterious man, Bray Johnson (Josh Lucas), into her life.  In just a few short days, Bray's presence re-ignites the family's spirit, but he carries a secret—and that secret could change everything.

About the movie Katie says, "I think that audiences are going to connect to this film because it brings a lot of hope. Hope never goes out of style."

"Human behaviour is always mysterious and particularly when there is an attraction or connection involved," adds Lucas.
