Malkovich, Danny Glover, Sally Field, and Ed Harris,
Places in the Heart was released in 1984. In this
movie, Edna Spaulding (Field) tragically loses her
husband, and based on the need to provide for her two
kids, she decides to plant cotton. She hires
Glover to help her and has a blind tenant (played by Malkovich) living there as well. This little group
forms an unlikely family. Very touching.
