  • BE GOOD, SMILE PRETTY is simultaneously a woman's search for her father and a powerful statement against war. One cannot watch it without wishing that Tracy Tragos' quest had never been necessary, and that all the young men who go off to war would come home to the little girls who wait.

  • There have been many films about the Vietnam War, but perhaps none as deeply felt or intimate as BE GOOD, SMILE PRETTY.
