Love Field ★★½ 1991 (PG-13)

Pfeiffer is a Jackie Kennedyobsessed hairdresser who decides to travel by bus to D.C. when she hears about President Kennedy's assassination. Along the way she gets involved in an interracial friendship with the secretive Haysbert, who's traveling with his young daughter. Pfieffer's Lurene is basically a sweet dim bulb and Haysbert has an unfortunately written onenote character (mainly exasperation). The six-year-old McFadden (in her debut) makes the most impact. 104m/C VHS, DVD .
