Based on the controversial book by Rodolfo Anaya, Bless Me, Ultima is the coming-of-age story of a young boy’s spiritual transformation. Set in New Mexico during WWII, Antonio Márez (Luke Ganalon) befriends the town’s curandera [medicine woman] and their unlikely relationship helps the young boy understand the battle of good vs. evil in his hometown. Thanks to our friends at Arenas Entertainment we have an exclusive clip of the movie. Here’s Luke Ganalon as he’s getting ready for his first day at school.
Directed by Carl Franklin, Bless Me, Ultima hits theaters this Friday.
