In the tiny town of Milagro, New Mexico, where the local water is a premium resource, shady developer Ladd Devine has conceived a glitzy resort that will ultimately siphon off all the water from the neighboring crop-fields. When handyman and farmer Joe Mondragon accidentally breaks a water valve reserved for major companies, he inadvertently sets off a small-scale water-rights war between the farmers and the developers.Written by

When Armarante is in the bar in the morning, he is served a shot of whiskey. He drinks it and says, "I'm not saying it's good. I'm not saying it's bad." In the next shot, his shot glass is full again and he drinks the whiskey again. It was not refilled by the bar tender. See more »
An endlessly charming story. Like wine, it gets better and better!!!
This movie captured the aura of how something small can become something really big in a small town. Everyone in Milagro takes the audience along to battle for the beanfield! Somehow they are all so familiar that we already know these people when we sit down to watch. This movie gets better and better every time you watch it! Definitely a favorite. Thanks Mr. Redford you gave cinema a wonderful gift.
