"Miracle Mile" starts conventionally enough with bashful musician (Edwards) going ga-ga over waitress (Winningham). After a pleasant if somewhat quirky day together, Edwards and Winningham plan a tete-a-tete at the all-night restaurant where the girl works. While preparing to call her on a pay phone, Edwards intercepts a frantic call from a soldier stationed at a midwestern missile silo. The message: nuclear warheads have been launched, and it's only 70 minutes to Armageddon. This unsettling news casts severe doubts over the future of Edwards' and Winningham's relationship, but they manage to touch base before the big bang. This is an optimistic slant on the end of the world.
