Desert Hearts [1986] (DVD)

Donna Deitch

BUY $18.98


It's 1959, and New York English professor Vivian Bell (Helen Shaver, The Color Of Money) has come to Reno for a quickie divorce. Staying at a dude ranch, she meets the proprietor's stepdaughter, the sexy casino change-girl Cay Rivvers (Patricia Charbonneau, Kiss The Sky). Despite their differences, sparks fly as free-spirited Cay introduces strait-laced Vivian to the wild-west casino scene and the haunting beauty of the desert. No one is angrier than the dude ranch proprietor (Audra Lindley, Three's Company). And no one is more surprised than the beautiful-but-repressed Vivian when the friendship evolves into unexpected, hot passion.

Desert Hearts pulses with a 50's country western soundtrack featuring Patsy Cline, Buddy Holly, Patti Page, Johnny Ray, Elvis Presley and more.
