Where the Heart Is - Movie Synopsis & Plot
After being abandoned by her boyfriend at a Wal-Mart, pregnant teenager Novalee Nation starts a new life in that very town, going through ups and downs, triumphs and tragedies, and love.
Natalie Portman has starred in one blockbuster and two flops. The blockbuster, of course, was The Phantom Menace
, which was hardly because of her, and her flops were Anywhere but Here
and Where the Heart Is
. She obviously doesn't have much star power, even though she is beautiful, talented, and able to attract some big names, such as Susan Sarandon in her last dud, and Joan Cusack, Sally Field, and Ashley Judd in this one (she sure is picking the good scripts as well, isn't she?).
