Lou Diamond Phillips stars as Ritchie Valens in this musical biography of the Mexican-American boy who became a rock 'n' roll star at the age of 17. Beginning as a labourer in the plantations of rural California, Valens' success was such that he would eventually undertake a triumphant tour with the legendary Buddy Holly (Marshall Crenshaw) and The Big Bopper (Stephen Lee). The film traces his rise to stardom, his relationships with his family and his high school girlfriend Donna (Danielle von Zerneck), and culminates with the tragic plane crash which killed him in 1959.

Synopsis

The life of rock and roll legend Ritchie Valens bursts across the screen in this celebrated, music-filled movie that features a star making performance by Lou Diamond Phillips.

Fuelled by Valens hit songs, performed by Grammy winners Los Lobos, and a soundtrack of classic 50s tunes, LA BAMBA recreates the thrilling early days of rock and pays homage to the legacy of a remarkable talent whose music crossed all borders.
