Directed by Martin Ritt

Running from the past and backing into love! Sally Field reunites with her Norma Rae director Martin Ritt (Hud, Paris Blues) for this engaging road comedy that also stars Tommy Lee Jones (The Fugitive, Blown Away) and David Keith (The Lords of Discipline). Field plays Amy Post, a hooker with a heart of gold who winds up on the road to California with Elmore Pratt (Jones), a crooked former prizefighter with maybe one good fight left in him. Sharing a turbulent relationship, the pair heads west from the Deep South - each banking on the new beginnings that beckon the dreams that may come true once they reach the Golden State. M. Emmet Walsh (Blood Simple) and Nell Carter (TV's Gimme a Break!) add touches of flavor to this gritty, absorbing story of two people living on the fringe, and their intriguing journey. Featuring gorgeous widescreen cinematography by the great John A. Alonzo (Chinatown, Scarface) and a rousing score by the legendary Henry Mancini (The Pink Panther, Breakfast at Tiffany's).
