Storyline

José is a young Mexican boy in the United States who hides in a church to avoid authorities after he injures his arm. When blood from his wound falls on a statue of Jesus, people think it's a miracle. Everyone flocks to the town, and the Rev. Russell, who knows the economic boom is good for the struggling parish, wonders what really happened. Local resident Maisie takes the boy in, and has a dilemma when she finds out the truth.

Unusual and worth viewing.
14 October 2003 | by (Tucson, Arizona) – See all my reviews

Sometimes, films exist outside the formulas. Sometimes, they can make the viewer uncomfortable. The Maldonado Miracle fits both categories. It deals with United States/Mexico border issues with frankness, and that makes many very uncomfortable. Then, it moves into religion and raises questions like: What is a miracle? How different people react is extremely interesting. The viewer must consider some basic issues in his or her own faith, something else that most are not comfortable with. Yet, these issues are what makes this film well worth viewing.
