| A movie that believes in fate
Might be what you'd get if Bill Forsythe's Local Hero ventured into John Grisham territory about a city slicker lawyer who finds his true purpose and redemption in a small Texas town. Heartfelt, soulful, gripping and gut-wrenching, Texas Heart grabs you with a tense, rapid fire opening courtroom scene and never lets go. It works so well because, as other reviewers have said, the script, acting, editing and overall production values (other than a tad underpopulated final courtroom scene) are all first rate. The dialogue really crackles. Favorite line: "That's what you get for messin' with Texas!" Great to see John Savage in a meatier role than his cameo in Return to Twin Peaks. Lin Shaye is a terrific, take-no-prisoners villain. The movie has a wonderful feel for small town life and great affection for its denizens, even the losers. It's like sinking into a great novel. The denouement is pretty damn unlikely but undeniably satisfying. Hey, it's a movie that believes in fate. And its heart, its great big Texas heart, is always in the right place.
