Films # 24 & 25: Texas Women Double Feature (Jun 27th)

Terms of Endearment
1983, 132 min.
Directed by James L. Brooks

Places in the Heart
1984, 111 min.
Directed by Robert Benton

Today on the menu: strong Texan women. Two 1980s films that have been widely acclaimed but have escaped me all these years. All I knew about Terms of Endearment was the ending, and the fact that one of the two leads didn't make it to the sequel nobody liked, The Evening Star. Places in the Heart I knew boasted a solid ensemble cast, but that was about it (oh, and there was a tornado in there somewhere)...

Full writeup of the films is a work in progress...
Check back soon!
