The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter


Southern writer Carson McCuller’s touching coming of age tale, steeped in the Southern Gothic tradition, about a lonely deaf-mute who befriends a misfit teenage girl living in his boarding house, was vividly brought to the big screen in this classic film version directed by Robert Ellis Miller (Any Wednesday), starring Alan Arkin and Sandra Locke, both of whom received Oscar nominations for their performances.
