Film Adaptation of Rudolfo Anaya's BLESS ME, ULTIMA in Theatres
Based on a book that was "banned, forbidden and burned."
The film adaptation of author Rudolfo Anaya's BLESS ME, ULTIMA opens in theaters across the country, today. I only discovered the story a few days, ago, and am looking forward to experiencing both the book and film. In short, the story is about a young boy who struggles with his family's cultural norms and religious beliefs when Ultima, a curandera-healer, comes to stay with his family in New Mexico.
If you have an opportunity, please watch the two-minute trailer and check-out the BLESS ME, ULTIMA official website where you can find out if the film will be showing near you.
