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!
