A Walk in the Clouds Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

In this atmospheric romantic drama, [[Performer~P59355~Keanu Reeves~keanureeves]] plays Paul Sutton, who has just returned home from a stretch in the Army during World War II. Still reeling from the horrors of war, Paul wants to settle down and start a farm, but his wife Betty ([[Performer~P224925~Debra Messing~debramessing]]), whom he met and impulsively married shortly before shipping out, has arranged for him to take a job as a salesman peddling chocolates. While taking a sales trip to another town, he befriends a beautiful but distraught young woman, Victoria Aragon ([[Performer~P151738~Aitana Sanchez-Gijon~aitanasanchezgijon]]). While away at college, Victoria met and fell in love with a young man and soon became pregnant; however, when her boyfriend discovered she was expecting, he abandoned her. She returns home full of shame and fearful of her father's reaction. But Paul gets an idea -- he'll pose as her husband and leave after a day or two, so when she's left alone with the child, the disgrace will be on him, not her. Victoria agrees, and Paul joins Victoria as she arrives at her family's estate in the California wine country. Most of the Aragon family take to Paul readily enough, especially Grandfather Don Pedro ([[Performer~P107297~Anthony Quinn~anthonyquinn]]), but Victoria's father, Alberto ([[Performer~P91430~Giancarlo Giannini~giancarlogiannini]]), senses something amiss between the young couple. A Walk In The Clouds was the first American film from director [[Performer~P79847~Alfonso Arau~alfonsoarau]], who previously made the international hit [[Feature~V29363~Like Water For Chocolate~likewaterforchocolate]]. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
