Places in the Heart is an older film that deserves a comeback. Sally Field earned one of her Oscars in this film about a Southern, Depression-era community struggling with poverty, racism, and sexism. Danny Glover and John Malkovich also provide wonderful performances. My Southern dinner will include barbecued chicken, corn bread stuffing, Southern potato salad, fresh green beans, and peach cobbler.
My August classes will feature Finding Fanny, an Indian film that’s part road trip, part comedy, and totally quirky.
