Storyline Heading
Based on the provocative award-winning novel by celebrated author Rudolfo Anaya, BLESS ME, ULTIMA tells the turbulent story of Antonio Marez, a young boy growing up in New Mexico during World War II. When Ultima, a mysterious healer comes to live with his family, she introduces Antonio to the power of the spiritual world. A strong woman with a great understanding of life, Ultima encourages Antonio who begins to question his strict upbringing. Through a series of mysterious and at times terrifying events, Antonio must grapple with questions about the nature of divinity and his own destiny.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Excellent Carl Franklin's film is true to the tone and spirit of the book. It is patient and in no hurry. It allows a balanced eye for the people in its hero's family who tug him one way and another.
