On November 22, 1963, America lost a president, and a generation lost its innocence. Today, the thunderous echoes of that day still rumble, yet one of the most powerful films to focus on the tragedy speaks volumes without ever raising its voice. In Love Field, Michelle Pfeiffer is simply incandescent in a role that earned her a second Academy Award nomination for Best Actress. This thoroughly captivating film about an interracial friendship is set against the backdrop 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 boards an eastbound bus, determined to "be there" for Jackie at the funeral. On board she meets a mysterious black man travelling with a sad, silent little girl. But when Lurene realises he`s given her a false name, she fears that she has 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.
