Places in the Heart is a 1984 Depression-era drama that won Sally Field her second Academy Award. After losing her husband, widow Edna Spalding (Sally Field) must find a way to pay her farm debts in order to keep her Texas land and support her children. In spite of her reservations, she accepts help from Moze (Danny Glover), a black hobo, to plant a cotton crop after he tries to steal her family's silverware. She also takes in a boarder, Mr. Will (John Malkovich), a cantankerous blind man. While Edna battles a tornado and the Ku Klux Klan on her farm, her sister, Margaret (Lindsay Crouse) works at a beauty parlor to support her philandering husband, Wayne (Ed Harris), who has become involved with her best friend, Viola (Amy Madigan). Writer and director Robert Benton ("Kramer vs. Kramer") crafts an unsentimental look at the tough times and extraordinary challenges of small town life.
