Directed by Luis Valdez | 1987

With Lou Diamond Phillips, Esai Morales, Rosanna DeSoto

The brief but brilliant life of Chicano rock ‘n’ roll legend Ritchie Valens yields one of the all-time best musical biopics thanks to the culturally specific direction of Luis Valdez. Lou Diamond Phillips gives a star-making performance as Valens (born Richard Valenzuela), a Mexican-American teen in 1950s California who becomes America's first Latino rock star—until his meteoric career is cut tragically short one fateful winter night.
