Based on the acclaimed novel by Judy Blume. Following her father’s murder, a teenager goes to stay with relatives in New Mexico and falls in love. Takes place mostly around Los Alamos and Santa Fe. More just a story of adapting to pain and loss. Of growing old enough to learn that most of the adventure hurts somewhere.
Reminded me a lot of the years I lived in Santa Fe, and the scene on the Rez was strikingly similar to a Christmas celebration my lady friend of the time, Amy Nevitt took me to at Jemez Pueblo in the home of friends.
If I didn’t miss New Mexico so much I think I’d have hated it. I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone. Fairly lousy movie except for the scenery.
