Editorial Reviews

On November 22, 1963, America lost a president and a generation lost its innocence. Michelle Pfeiffer (What Lies Beneath) is superb (The Hollywood Reporter) in this 'thoroughly captivating (Rex Reed) film about an interracial friendship set against the back drop of a nation both divided by prejudice and united by sorrow. Dallas housewife Lurene Hallett (Pfeiffer) feels such a strong personal connection to her idol, Jackie Kennedy, that when JFK is assassinated, she defies her husband and takes an eastbound bus, determined to be there for Jackie at the funeral. On board she meets a mysterious black man traveling with a sad, silent little girl. But when Lurene realizes thathe's given her a false name, she fears she's uncovered a kidnapping plot! As a result of her well-intentioned meddling, the trio end up on the run from the police and, ultimately, on the road to a deep friendship that defies racial boundaries and changes each of them forever.

Hollywood wouldn't know a great character driven movie/script if it hit them with a MACK truck,this film should have received much more attention. Michelle Pfeiffer should have won the Oscar for her role and talent breathing life into the child like naive Texan, Lurene. The "very blond" hairdresser from Dallas deals with her reality by viewing her life through the eyes of Jackie Kennedy. Even down to owning the clothing patterns for Jackie's wardrobe and dealing with her own life's regrets through Jackie's eyes, it is destiny that she attend the President's funeral to give support to Jackie. On her journey she encounters a black man with his own regrets and problems, along with his young daughter Jonell, "Joan Ellen". As their paths meet, so do a variety of crisis that brings their point of views together. Racial observers looking at Lurene and Paul funny because of their acquaintace with each other, but the childlike Lurene doesn't understand why. This is definately a treat to watch, and as a native Dallas/Fort Worth Texan, I vow that Michelle nailed the character Lurene as very believeable, from the accent to her viewpoint as a Texan in the 60's...with a special touch of course. Treat yourself and watch this movie!

Call me sentimental, I don't care, but I loved this film. Although it deals with America's cancer - racism- as well as any I can recall, it does so in a way that should touch the human in any civilized human. There have been hundreds of films with racism at their heart, PINKY, THE DEFIANT ONES, THE COLOR PURPLE, MISSISSIPPI BURNING, THE SEARCHERS etc, etc but LOVE FIELD is up with the best and this is due mainly to the masterly direction of Mr Kaplan. But to cite racism as its raison d'etre is to miss the fact that it has a compelling narrative, the story of a journey - on a bus, in a series of vintage sixties automobiles which cruise through the poverty stricken back counties of the black South, and on foot - and an internal journey in the heart and mind of its three main characters, a black man, and his five year old daughter, and a VERY white white woman. There are at least two laugh out loud moments one featuring the gorgeous Ms Pfeiffer who, when caught short in the countryside, is about to defecate on a map of Virginia when she realises they are very near the goal of HER journey, Arlington Cemetery and JFK's funeral, and she stumbles up shouting with her knickers literally in a twist around her ankles. Unless you have a heart of stone, you will also shed some tears over this film - for its characters, for good American people, for the hopes of a potentially great country, and the failure of the American dream. The huge cars symbolise so much - and when our heroes drive off in one, it clunks along at no more than 40 because it is damaged goods, just as the society is which judges and weighs worth on the basis of colour. To me this is Ms Pfeiffer's greatest role and one of the finest I have seen of an American actor. Mr Haysbert is brilliant. A great American film. Call me sentimental, but I loved it!

I can't begin to understand why this film was ignored by audiences everywhere, but I am glad I had the opportunity to watch this film. Love Field is about a woman obsessed with Jackie Kennedy and she has to meet her when she and JFK arrive at the Dallas airport. Later on in the picture, Michelle Pfeiffer's character leaves her husband and on the way meets a father and his daughter and befriends them. It may seem like a 'simple' movie, but Love Field is a touching film worth your time.

With everyone seeming to review only Pfeiffer's performance . . . did no one understand Dennis Haybert's role? I read in the gossip columns of the day that there was no love lost between the two off screen, but Haysbert did a marvellous job if this is fact. The simple act of his embrace after release from prison: a smothered chuckle at voicing her dislike of the word divorcee, accompanied by the subtle inhalation of her hair/perfume made me tear. Why don't people notice these small but human interpretations?
Dennis Haysbert has indeed trudged a long way to stardom, whilst Michelle, although an excellent actress, has had only to slightly lower her lashes for a wonderful photograph!
I am not African-American, nor even American by birth. No invert or overt racism here! I simply believe Dennis Haysbert's performance was totally overlooked in this film.

Love Field is a wonderful film about a confused relationship between a man and a woman. The acting is fantastic, the script is great, an the direction is inspired. Pfeiffer definitley deserved her nomination for this great film. I loved every minute of it.

I will always wonder why this movie did not get the attention it deserved. Perhaps people still shy away from the racial issue. Whatever the answer may be, it is a terrible pity, since it was probably Michelle Pfeiffers best performance ever.
Moreover this movie, centred around the growing affection between two people from different cultural and racial background brings the racial isssue closer to the public then any other movie I have ever seen.
Excellent acting, a good script and the controversial subject treated with a sublety that in no way distracts from its importance make this the top movie in it's genre
