Product Description

During the Vietnamese war, US pilot Jake Robbins (Kris Kristofferson) was presumed dead after being shot down in action. In fact he was nursed back to health by Khmer Rouge peasant Leang, with whom he fell in love and started a family. However, when his American citizenship is discovered Jake is shipped back to the States, to be reunited with his wife of seventeen years before, Sarah (JoBeth Williams), who has now remarried. Desperate to return to Leang, Jake is forced to realize the effect his return has had on his old family, including his father and teenage son.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Little Treasure!! 19 Jun 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A Truely Underated Kristofferson Classic thats worth every penny at such a low price.
Dont expect a big budget movie, its more like a TV movie but with the difference of actually being watchable and with some great touching performances from Kristofferson in the lead role.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unwelcome Home 30 May 2014
By pipnuts
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Kris Kristofferson is a Vietnam Veteran who escapes from the Jungle 17 years after being shot down. Forced to leave his Cambodian wife and family behind at the Thai border, he has to fight red tape and military officials who want to cover up his return, in order to get his family back to America. He also has to help his family in America come to terms with him being alive, among other things.
Brian Keith, Jo-Beth Williams, and Sam Waterston are among the others to make up a cracking cast. Tense, dramatic, and tautly and leanly written.

5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome Home 22 Mar 2012

I love this movie and play it often. I especially love the ballad that runs through it by Willie Nelson. As others have said I am frustrated that I cannot find the song by Willie to purchase. It is a masterpiece, lyrics like "time has picked your pockets clean" and the irresistable melody.
I cry every time I watch this story. It is moving and a testiment to the generation that lived through the Vietnam War period and beyond it.
I too would like to be able to buy it on DVD as I don't know how much longer my VHS and VCR will hold up.
Please Willie Nelson put this on a CD and the original from the movie, NOT a re-recording!.Thanks in advance.

I have watched this multiple times and I enjoy it every time I watch it. There is nothing like a military homecoming to moisten the eyes and make you understand what is important.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why have they never released this on DVD? 8 April 2011
By Richard O. Williams III - Published on
Verified Purchase
This film reached right into my heart and actually made me cry. I have loved it ever since I first saw it, and I purchased it in VHS format, which I generally seek to avoid as DVD's are so much more convenient.
It has also been a source of great frustration, as there is a song, a soulful ballad, sung by Willie Nelson, which through years of searching I have never been able to find in a format for purchase, and as I remember was penned by Henry Mancini, that I would simply die to have in my collection. I have found many fans of this film over the years that share my pain.
This film is about reconnection and redemtion, and most importantly, the power of love. It is set in the aftermath of Vietnam and is all about healing. I cannot give this fil a higher reccomendation.
(and for heaven's sake will someone in power please release that song, or convince Willie Nelson to include it on a cd.)
