Tiger Eyes – a movie filmed in New Mexico

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.
