Many of the other previous comments have adequately depicted the story line, so my remarks will be addressed more to the essence of the film.
I can think of barely a handful of films over the last fifty years that is so powerfully moving that it can mentally displace you to a time and place of your own youth. You imagine living the movie as it unfolds; the acting is superb, drawing the viewer into its simplistic story lines yet highly desirable setting in the New Mexico southwest. The characters are wonderfully developed throughout the film, which can't help but draw parallel comparisons to one's own family. As it turns through a number of subplots, situational life experiences and the youthful interrelationships, it maintains a special flow to the climatic and heart-touching end. You will find yourself begging for this film to go on and on. If you will allow yourself to be drawn in, this movie will elicit a variety of emotions and become one of your all-time favorites, as it has for me. I can't imagine this film being rated less than a solid '10'!
