I have seen a rough cut of the film. It has the feel of a telenovela, with various dramatic themes weaving in and out of the story - and it includes the story of the apparitions of La Virgen de Guadalupe to St. Juan Diego 475 years ago. The film is a wondeful companion to the New Line Cinema film coming out on December 1 as well, The Nativity Story (www.thenativitystory.com). - Rose
500 years ago, a prophecy written in the book of Revelations came to be. A sign in the sky, a lady with the sun in her back, appeared before Juan Diego, a humble Indian learning the ways of Jesus, and in his “tilma” she left her image so people from all over would come to her to find comfort and support and her motherly embrace.
In that miracle image, two different cultures found common ground to work together and forge a nation, to create a future. Now, 500 years later, new facts are being discovered, and a new understanding of the message of Jesus is arising. It’s as if our Lady had left her images as a code that would speak to us through time.
In this movie, two Spanish brothers trying to understand the miracle of our Lady experience the miracle in their souls. As they go deeper and deeper, a feeling of conversion and reconciliation with God and themselves grows stronger.
It is a contemporary story of people who will go beyond scientific facts, to find the true meaning of life.
It is a story of personal struggle which will move the audience into seeking a more profound reflection of God through Our Lady of Guadalupe.
