Storyline

This is an excellent movie beginning for a young man growing up in Mobile with freedom of sailing and girls his age. His naval father goes off to war and relocates him to New Mexico where he discovers the sensitive world of hispanics and their culture. He is befriended by a young lady his own age and gets crossways with a local bad boy. Very well done with plot and acting.

This is a great and grand film.
22 June 2004 | by (San Antonio, TX) – See all my reviews

I viewed this film for the first time in a motel room at White Sands, New Mexico in 1997. I was completely bowled over. This was a stunning piece of photography (yes, filmography) and truly touching in its use of apace, fauna, and New Mexico geography. Richard Thomas and Desi Arnez,jr were wonderful. This is a real "coming of age" film. I wish to high heaven it were on video. I was, obviously, quite moved.

The idea of placing characters from the WWII era in a desert,detached setting seemed uninteresting and silly to me, at first. As the film progressed, however, one realizes that World War is always somewhere in the background, a father who could hold it all together gone. What a trial for the young people of this film and we come to understand them and their anxieties.
