However, when his mother learns of Mike’s intentions, she threatens to inform the local police that Mike is a kidnapper. While dodging pursuing police and Leta’s henchman, Mike and Rafo find refuge in a cafe run by the warm-hearted Marta. Mike and Marta are attracted to each other but Mike is determined to bring Rafo to Texas. On their way to the border, Mike tells Rafo about living right and having a love for horses. They make it to the Texas border and Rafo unites with his father. At this time Mike thinks about staying in Mexico and pursuing a relationship with Marta.

- Too early for any awards but Clint Eastwood will surely get nominated for either Best Director or Best Actor or both.
Now streaming on:
Mr.Eastwood’s character, like others he’s played, argues in favor of kindness and probity over physical force. It’s a slow-release dose of sincere feelings.
CRY MACHO is something different – a deep cut for the die-hards, a hangout movie with nothing much to prove and just enough to say…If Clint Eastwood’s driving, my advice is to get in and enjoy the ride.
