”Places in the Heart”: How romantic is it?

STARRING Sally Field, Danny Glover

THE HEART OF IT A widowed farm wife (Field) must join forces with a wanderer (Glover) and a blind boarder (John Malkovich) to save her farm.

WHY IT’S RIGHT FOR V-DAY You might not see anything directly romantic in this single mom’s devastating struggle (which earned Field, above, an Oscar), but at least it proves that the Great Depression was a much tougher obstacle than not having a date on Valentine’s Day.
