Acclaimed by critics all over the country and boasting an Academy Award-winning performance by Sally Field, "Places In The Heart" is a landmark film. Its emotionally gripping story centers around Edna Spalding (Field) and her unending struggle against extraordinary hardships. But, as recalled from director-writer Robert Benton's own childhood, it's also a portrait of a time and a place and a people. It is the 1930s in Waxahachie, Texas. Against this Depression-torn background, unforgettable characters meet and collide. Like Mr. Will (John Malkovich), the blind boarder who sees all too clearly the bigotry of his time, Moze (Danny Glover), a black man who knows a lot, including his own place in a white Southern town, and Wayne (Ed Harris), Margaret (Lindsay Crouse) and Viola (Amy Madigan), decent people caught up in an adulterous triangle which threatens two marriages. Together they leave an indelible impression of faith, courage, love and, most of all, endurance.
