Where the Heart Is ()

directed by
featuring Dabney Coleman, Uma Thurman, Joanna Cassidy, Crispin Glover, David Hewlett, Suzy Amis

In this comedy from writer-director John Boorman, wealthy real estate mogul Stewart McBain (Dabney Coleman) owns a demolition firm which specializes in blowing up old buildings to make way for upscale new ones. When neighbors protest his plans to raze a dilapidated old building to make way for a new Brooklyn subdivision, television crews film the confrontation, and McBain comes off like a fool. His three spoiled children ridicule him. Tired of their carping, McBain gives them each 750 dollars and drops them off at the old building, known as the Dutch House. Daphne (Uma Thurman), Chloe (Suzy Amis), and Jimmy (David Hewlett) are at first completely lost, because they have no idea how to live in the real world. As McBain and his wife, Jean (Joanna Cassidy), monitor their children's progress, the three youngsters learn to get along with the neighborhood people and eventually set up a commune of sorts, into which they invite their friends and various homeless people. Michael Betzold, Rovi Hide synopsis
