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.
Drama - This drama with some mystical elements is adaptation of the best
selling novel of the same name. While there is some mild violence,
language, and scary moments and images, it would be considered safe
family viewing in general though parents of very young children should
use discretion. There are no big name stars in the cast.
Roger EbertFull 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.
