Audience Reviews for The Maldonado Miracle
I got a chance to sit down and watch this movie again with my Mom. This is really a hidden gem of a movie that many people have not seen. It was directed by Salma Hayek who did a great job and made the film feel authentic and not corny. The film could have been preachy about immigration issues or they could have dealt with some of the religious issues or views in a very thin way. However, Hayek and the script deal with the subject matter in a very balanced manner and really capture the feeling of the people and the small town. The movie does a great job in fleshing out some of the characters and making them more complex than just having a mean racist sheriff or the town bad boy/greedy opportunist. The actors take their roles and make them great. There is a bit of humor and levity. The movie is not too serious, but it is serious enough. A great movie all around and one I could watch many times. That's why I have it on DVD.
