A FILM BY DONNA DEITCH

Based on Jane Rule’s novel Desert of the Heart (1964), Donna Deitch’s narrative feature debut centres on a burgeoning lesbian romance between libertine casino worker Cay Rivvers (Patricia Charbonneau) and repressed university professor Vivian Bell (Helen Shaver) in Reno, Nevada in the late 1950s, a climate wherein being queer was...complicated.
