“Nobody’s perfect. There was never a perfect person around. You just have half-angel, half-devil in you.” Linda Manz’s twelve-year-old narrator with the bizarre brogue has seen it all: love, death, and a plague of locusts. It’s 1916, and Chicagoans Richard Gere, little sister Manz, and lover Brooke Adams head for the Texas Panhandle to work the wheat fields of prosperous farmer Sam Shepard.

“Visually and thematically, it’s still one of the most beautiful films ever made.” – David Jenkins, Time Out
