Places In The Heart review
Wow, I didn't really like this film. It's a simple story which we've seen a million times and it felt like a lifetime movie. Sally Field was good, but I was underwhelmed by her . She has some great moments, but, like Fritz said in his review of her performance, the script limits her character so her performance felt incomplete to me. She was a lot better in Norma Rae which is also a much stronger film.I don't really get John Malkovich and Lindsay Crouse's nominations. They were good, but Oscar-worthy? And the ending. Oh my god, the ending. It made absolutely no sense to me. I won't give it away, but seriously. The last scene makes no sense what so ever. I have no idea why this was nominated for Best Picture and won Best Actress and Best Original Screenplay. My grade for the film: C minus. What do you think of this movie? Do you like Field's performance?
