Movie Summary

Director:
Luis Valdez
Released:
1987
Rating:
PG-13
The plane crash that killed rocker Buddy Holly also took the life of Ritchie Valens (Lou Diamond Phillips), a 17-year-old Mexican-American who rocketed to fame with the hit "La Bamba." The film paints a vivid portrait of Valens' modest upbringing, his warm relationship with his hard-working mother (Rosanna DeSoto) and his rise to stardom. Los Lobos performs Valens' music on the soundtrack.
