“I sincerely believe that to see good films, and to see important films, is one of the most profoundly civilizing experiences that we can have as people.”
-- Roger Ebert
Each fall, TPR Cinema turns the programming over to Texas Public Radio’s CEO, Joyce Slocum, for a movie night of her choosing. Her film interests include classic movies as well as contemporary fare; she serves as a board member of the USA Film Festival.
On Tuesday, November 29, Joyce’s Choice is the Texas-based drama, “Places in the Heart,” starring Sally Field as a farm widow struggling to weather the Depression. The movie also stars John Malkovich as a blind boarder and World War I veteran, and Danny Glover as a farmer who coaches Edna on running her farm.
Based loosely on director Robert Benton’s own experiences growing up in Waxahachie, “Places in the Heart” was nominated for seven Academy Awards, winning two, for Sally Field as Best Actress and Robert Benton’s original screenplay.
TPR's Joyce Slocum will help introduce the film.
102 minutes, Rated PG.
