Love Field is the acclaimed 1992 period drama from director Jonathan Kaplan and famed screenwriter Don Roos (The Opposite of Sex, Boys on the Side). Lurene Hallett (Michelle Pfieffer, Batman Returns) is a thirty-something Dallas beautician obsessed with President Kennedy and even more with his wife Jacqueline. When she learns that the President has been assassinated she is determined to travel by bus to Washington to attend his funeral, without either the knowledge or approval of her husband Ray. During her journey, Lurene meets Paul Cater, a black fellow-passenger, travelling with a young girl named Jonell, who he claims is his daughter. She senses that something is wrong, jumps to the conclusion that Paul has kidnapped the child and raises the alarm. When she realizes the truth - that Paul is indeed Jonell's father and that he has rescued her from an orphanage where she was being mistreated after the death of her unmarried mother - Lurene feels that she needs to make amends for her well-intentioned but ill-judged interference, and helps Paul to make a getaway. The two find themselves on a perilous road trip across several Southern states with the police in pursuit.moreless
