Angel flying too close to the ground about covers it...
I saw this movie years ago when it first came out, and I love it as much now as I did then. It covers what happens in the lives of some performers as they do their jobs. Some think that it is great to do something that you love to do and still get paid for it! On one hand that is true, but there are pitfalls that can mess up your life if you aren't prepared to deal with them. Drinking and drugs is only a part of it.
This movie deals with how hard it is to hold a marriage together when one in the couple is on the road all the time. Both make compromises. But if you love someone, you do what you have to do to make it work. I think that pretty much goes for any marriage, not just for gypsies. It takes special people with a strong love to make it work. That's what this is all about. Unfortunately, some don't have that strong a love.
In this case, they did.
