Where the Heart Is

* *

Matt Williams directs Natalie Portman as a pregnant teen abandoned by her boyfriend in an Oklahoma Wal-Mart store. Dylan Bruno, Stockard Channing, Joan Cusack and Ashley Judd will also star. Sally Field will have a cameo. Based on Billie Letts' novel. Previously titled Where the Heart Is.

Capsule Review: An overly packed melodrama, Where the Heart Is should have jettisoned a good chunk of its subplots. Still, the film is not all bad. A strong central performance from Natalie Portman holds this one together...but barely. (Fox)
