REVIEWS:





"Robert Benton has made one of the best films in years about growing up American. Its title is 'Places in the Heart'. .... With the exception of one spectacular sequence in which a tornado tears through Waxahachie and another sequence involving the Ku Klux Klan, the film moves through a series of rather ordinary events, discovering in them not cliches but essential meanings. The strong, sweet emotions aroused by close relationships, among friends as well as among family members, are revealed with
unaffected clarity and a sense of surprise. Considering the stinginess
manifest in so many aspects of our lives, the existence
of such decency is as unexpected as it is welcome."

-- Excerpt from The New York Times; September 21, 1984
