Places in the Heart

Draft Review by Dean Duncan Jun 3, 2015

The effect only increases with each screening, exceedingly fine craft–each story point leads directly but uncontrivedly to the next, leaving the viewer neither out nor objection; the direction restrained and respectful so that the high points (still restrained and respectful) are actually explosive; the acting by the hard to believe cast full of nuances, humanizing and individualizing touches–completely true emotions and even spiritual stirrings; I doubt they know what they made here, but they made it anyway
