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.

review of Maldonado Miracle
8 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I agree with the flaw stated in the above review, however, I liked this film for other reasons. First of all, there is ethnographic value to this film. The religion student may also want to check it out. Peter Fonda is no Captain America here but he shows nice depth in his portrayal of the priest. Brother Amos, portrayed by Scott Michael Campbell, is also top-notch acting. The zealous "miracle-finding" woman drove me more than a bit crazy but I believe that is to Salma's credit for its realism. Check it out, as always, if you don't expect the world to rotate just for your purposes, you will walk away feeling good about the time you just spent.
