A winner in the cardiac stakes. Field is the smallholding farmer, recently widowed, who takes in a blind veteran (Malkovich) and desperately tries to farm her cotton crop with the help of a black itinerant farmhand (Glover). Friendships quicken, love hardens, the constant toil is made endurable by the small town ethic of communal feelings. Much is unemphatic, but all of it carries the moving weight of conviction. And it ends on a healing grace-note which passeth all understanding. CPea.
