WHERE THE HEART IS (1990)
1990, Buena Vista Pictures, 107 min, USA, Dir: John Boorman

Father doesn’t always know best in this underrated satire from writer-director John Boorman. Dabney Coleman stars as a wealthy developer whose attempt to raze a local residence is met with ridicule; when his children (Uma Thurman, Suzy Amis and David Hewlett) join in, he decides it’s time for them to leave the nest - and is surprised by how well they adapt. Beautiful design and cinematography (by Peter Suschitzky) add plenty of visual appeal to this charming comedy.
