4.0 out of 5 stars Coming of age in migrant farm family
Goyo is a 17 year old gay teen, very close to his twin sister Rosa. They live in the Coachella Valley of California, where their parents work as migrant farm workers in the grape fields.

1.0 out of 5 stars Why is this movie rated as "not rated"
How about a PG rating? It had a few F-words so maybe an R rating. There were several times
that a sexual affair was hinted at but when the sex was to start that scene was stopped and cut
to the next scene. There were a few nice looking men in this movie but not one even was shown
shirtless. This is pretending to be a gay movie about sex and it has no sex...

4.0 out of 5 stars Coming of age in migrant farm family, October 1, 2013
By

This review is from: Waterberry Tears (DVD)
Goyo is a 17 year old gay teen, very close to his twin sister Rosa. They live in the Coachella Valley of California, where their parents work as migrant farm workers in the grape fields. His father, Ramon, does not accept his son's sexual orientation, and is verbally and physically abusive to him and his mother, whom he somewhat blames for it. The problem worsens after Goyo had a tryst with a new young man in the camp, who Rosa later becomes interested in an starts dating. Ramon throws Goyo out of the house for trying to seduce his sister's fiancé.

This is an emotional, well-acted 2010 coming-of-age film, written by a screenwriter who based it on his own family. I felt the characters of the sister and the mother were rather one-dimensional, and would have liked to see more development there. Overall, however, this is a touching story that illustrates how society's preconceptions can hurt a young man such as Goyo.

This film is bilingual, since the older generation talks in Spanish while the younger ones speak English. You can choose English or Spanish sub-titles on the DVD. There are no other extras. I give the film 4 stars out of 5.

1.0 out of 5 stars Why is this movie rated as "not rated", January 3, 2014

This review is from: Waterberry Tears (DVD)
How about a PG rating? It had a few F-words so maybe an R rating. There were several times
that a sexual affair was hinted at but when the sex was to start that scene was stopped and cut
to the next scene. There were a few nice looking men in this movie but not one even was shown
shirtless. This is pretending to be a gay movie about sex and it has no sex and no nudity. Ok, if
you want to watch a gay movie without any sex or nudity then you may like Waterberry Tears.
Supposed to be a coming of age movie but the dude who is coming of age looks to be in his twenty's.
The director must not like gays very much. The gay guy in this movie works a job for ten minutes and
faints. This film shows gays as lazy and incapable of doing any work. There are a lot of good gay coming of age
movies out there, this is not one of them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Low budget, mostly good acting, December 22, 2013
Though this low-budege indy is uneven in many respects, there were MOSTLY good acting performances. The metaphor of waterberry tears (no body want them) and the protagonist's life (he erroneously thought no body wanted him) was moving.

3.0 out of 5 stars Glad I Watched, November 24, 2013
By 
Lost in Vegas (Las Vegas, Nevada) - See all my reviews
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a compelling, well-paced story that held my interest to the end. That is not to say that the acting and filming aren't a bit amateurish, but through it all they won me over. The story has a number of twists and turns but, all in all, it seemed as quirky as real life can be. For an Anglo like me, it also gave me a glimpse into the lower-class farm labor life of Mexican immigrants.

4.0 out of 5 stars A family dynamic not to be missed, March 11, 2014
By 
All believable except possibly the ending. So much going on and a wrap up that could have happened but in reality, much more conversation and anger would have been exerted exceeding the given movie time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Compeling story., March 10, 2014
Good story about being Hispanic and gay. One immediately feels for the boy and dislikes the father intensely. Its unbelievable that the father turns around so fast at the end.

This movie was a great drama of one gay boy's life. I liked the way they interjected the suggestion that he was raped as a young boy, not to suggest that was the reason he was gay, but to give meaning to the acting out place he would go to.

This was so unsatisfying that I started to skip through it. The boy's acting wasn't too bad. The others' acting wasn't too good.
