An incredibly uplifting story about faith, fatherhood and family, Netflix’s new masterpiece of a film, Blue Miracle will surely reel everyone in for a magnificent, cinematic experience that will truly touch your heart. Hope is on the line in this extraordinary film, directed by Julio Quintana, which follows a group of boys from a local orphanage, Casa Hogar, and their guardian Omar (portrayed by Jimmy Gonzales) who team up with a short-tempered, two-time Bisbee fishing tournament champion (played by Dennis Quaid) for a chance to win the coveted $250,000 prize and save the orphanage. This terrific film will bring about a sea of emotions and will undoubtedly leave a lasting impact on all viewers.
Blue Miracle, which is based on a true story, centers on the Casa Hogar orphanage that’s on the verge of bankruptcy. Problems heighten when Hurricane Odile makes its way to Cabo San Lucas in Mexico and devastates the community. In order to keep life in Cabo San Lucas somewhat at a normalcy after the natural disaster, Wayne Bisbee, the head of the renowned Bisbee Black & Blue Fishing Tournament, continues to host the championship, this time a little differently. After Hurricane Odile, an anonymous donor pledged to pay the entry fee for any team that agrees to hire a local boat, helping to bring money back into the local economy. This silver lining moment gives Casa Hogar a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to rescue the place that’s served as their safe haven for so long.
The touching and heart-warming film stars the aforementioned, veteran and consummate actor Dennis Quaid, the sensational Jimmy Gonzales, and the superb talents of Miguel Ángel García, Anthony Gonzalez, Nathan Arenas, Raymond Cruz, Isaac Arellanes, Steve Gutierrez, Dana Wheeler-Nicholson, Fernanda Urrejola, Silverio Palacios and Bruce McGill. The movie has a strong focus on family, with the boys yearning for their family and parents, but what they end up creating is a Casa Hogar family of their own filled with love, support, brotherhood and encouragement. This excellent cast’s fantastic bond with one another proves they’re an outstanding family, both on and off screen.
Leave it to Netflix to share such a powerful film with everyone. It’s exactly the kind of movie we all need in this world that features a countless amount of inspiring messages and moral lessons embedded throughout the film. Blue Miracle is a heartfelt look at several young boys who, although coming from different walks of life, join together and form a bond even thicker than blood. One of the many marvelous parts about the film is its representation of Latinx values. The team behind the movie prioritized on having the writer, cast and crew mostly being Latinx.
The immensely talented Miguel Ángel García, who plays the role of Moco in the mesmerizing flick, did such a show-stopping job in the movie. García’s great gift for acting will give you chills and he perfectly performs the role of his dynamic character and his affecting character arc. The complex character of Moco is one that many people will resonate with. Moco spent quite some time of his life learning how to fend for himself, but during his time with the Casa Hogar boys and Papa Omar at the Bisbee Tournament, he learns the importance of accepting people into his life and that there’s a new family welcoming him with open arms. Miguel Ángel García is a force to be reckoned with and his work in this film is great proof of the magnificent mark he is making in the entertainment world. García is a fantastic match for this wonderful movie and bringing out a story that truly needs to be told.
