Alamo Bay (1985) Louis Malle, Amy Madigan, Ed Harris, Ho Nguyen, Action, Drama, Romance

alamo-bay-1985
Embittered Vietnam veteran Shang (Ed Harris) feels like he is at war with the Vietnamese immigrants who recently moved into his hometown of Alamo Bay. He sees their presence as a threat to his Gulf Coast livelihood, shrimp fishing, especially after his boat is repossessed. Shang’s ex-girlfriend Glory (Amy Madigan) refuses to buy into the townsfolk’s racism and instead sticks with her Vietnamese hires, even though the xenophobic backlash is becoming increasingly violent.

I lived in the Rockport-Fulton area, where parts of the movie was filmed, most of my life. I remember when the Vietnamese people began moving into the area, and the problems they had with some of the local citizens. This movie was pretty accurate about the feelings of some of the shrimpers, I am sorry to say. Ed Harris did a wonderful job of portraying the racist shrimper. He reminds me of a few people I knew in the area. Amy Madigan was also great portraying his former girlfriend. She had some tough decisions to make. This is a good movie with interesting characters and great acting. I think that the relationship between some of the Texas shrimpers and the Vietnamese shrimpers is portrayed pretty realistically.
