Filmed near Taos: “Off the Map”

Off the MapHi everyone, Adrienne here! We’re starting a new series: our favorite movie or TV show filmed in New Mexico.
I’ve selected Campbell Scott’s “Off the Map” filmed near Taos in 2003. Starring Sam Elliott and Joan Allen and set in 1974, this film tells the story of a family dealing with depression while living an unconventional off-the-grid lifestyle.
It’s a wonderful film on multiple levels, but I especially love the New Mexican landscape. One scene will forever stay with me: when William stands and stares at the mountains for, seemingly, hours. New Mexico really can haunt and ensnare you just like that!
