You had me at scrappy kids trying to save their orphanage premiering on Netflix on May 27, 2021
I won’t lie I always have a soft spot for feel-good movies with kids. I saw the Blue Miracle trailer and it has such a great story. All of the components of making my heart swell 10x big. Based on a true story, kids wanting to save their home, a curmudgeon who I know by the end will love all the children, and a passel of cute kids <my ovaries>. I’m looking forward to the film written by Julio Quintana (Director/Writer) and Chris Dowling about Casa Hogar, the Mexican boy’s home that went to great lengths to save it after damages from storms. Who can resist these little cuties trying to save the only home they know? The moment that Gecko (Anthony Gonzalez), Wiki (Isaac Arellanes) and Hollywood (Nathan Arenas) came on the screen looking like lost lambs I was hooked. Then rounding the cast out with Papa Omar (Jimmy Gonzales) and Captain Wade Malloy (Dennis Quaid) well I knew my heartstrings were getting plucked!
Blue Miracle: The local boys orphanage Casa Hogar is about to go bankrupt and their director Papa Omar (Jimmy Gonzales) is desperate to find a way to save it. With all avenues closed, he turns to a local fishing tournament with hopes of a miracle. There’s one small problem, neither he nor his boys have ever fished. They team up with the reluctant Captain Wade Malloy (Dennis Quaid), a previous tournament champion, hoping he can steer them to victory. Unbeknownst to them, Molloy is fighting his own challenges. Once out on the open ocean, unexpected friendships are created, strengths are tested, and with the power of faith, we see miracles do come true. BLUE MIRACLE also stars Anthony Gonzalez, Raymond Cruz, Nathan Arenas, Miguel Ángel García, Isaac Arellanes, Steve Gutierrez, Dana Wheeler-Nicholson, Fernanda Urrejola, Silverio Palacios with Bruce McGill and is directed by Julio Quintana.
