"The Maldonado Miracle" Review


From our NetFlix queue came "The Maldonado Miracle" for our family movie night this week. We liked it much more than we expected! GREAT movie about a fictitious Catholic church whose crucifix starts dripping blood. The little immigrant boy is adorable and you will start praying for him to get his dog back. Peter Fonda is the parish priest whose hope is dying in the nearly-ghost town. Mare Winningham is the perky cafe owner who befriends little Jose and his dog. Several miracles woven together effortlessly into one, short (99 min.) movie. The script and director both won a Daytime Emmy in 2004.

That is a really great flick! I wrote an extensive review of it all the way back in November 2007 if anyone's interested in looking it up.

Sorry I didn't see your original review! There are lots of good rabbit trails on this one!

No problem! It's nice to look back at an old post now and then.

And besides... you have good taste! :)
