The Milagro Beanfield War (Blu-ray)
Directed by Robert Redford
M. Emmet Walsh
From Robert Redford, the award-winning director of Ordinary People, A River Runs Through It, Quiz Show, The Horse Whisperer and The Legend of Bagger Vance, comes this absolutely delightful comedy of everyday people caught up in extraordinary circumstances. When Chicano handyman Joe Mondragon (Chick Vennera, Last Rites) from the Milagro Valley decides to irrigate his small beanfield by borrowing some water from a large and potentially destructive site, he unknowingly sets off a chain reaction that erupts into a humorous culture clash. The developers then try to stamp out the modest plantings, forcing the handyman’s friends to team up with the spirited rebel to protect and preserve their way of life. The stellar cast includes Ruben Blades (Color of Night), Sonia Braga (The Rookie), Melanie Griffith (A Stranger Among Us), John Heard (Deceived), Daniel Stern (Celtic Pride), Christopher Walken (King of New York), M. Emmet Walsh (Blood Simple) and music legend Freddy Fender. The Milagro Beanfield War won an Oscar for Best Original Score by the great Dave Grusin (Fuzz, Havana).
Blu-ray Extras Include:
NEW Audio Commentary by Star Chick Vennera and Film Historian/Filmmaker Daniel Kremer
Dual-Layered BD50 Disc
Optional English Subtitles
