4 thoughts on “TBT: Desert Hearts (1985)

  1. I worked for several months in 1986 in a small “mom ‘n’ pop” video store, and our copy of DESERT HEARTS was constantly checked out.

    We would frequently have another woman waiting in the store for it to be returned, and didn’t even get to reshelve it– it was that popular!

    Surprisingly, this was in a small, fairly conservative town– not the place where you’d expect this film to have such an intense following. But I guess it speaks to the lack of representation at the time and the quality of the film.
