Professor Vivian Bell (Helen Shaver) arrives in 1950s Nevada to get a divorce. She finds accommodation on a ranch where she is increasingly drawn to the ranch owner’s daughter (Patricia Charbonneau), an open and self-assured lesbian.

Social critic Camille Paglia says the film is “steeped in moody, classic country and western music, [and] conveys romantic longing and confusion with bittersweet intensity . . . The film has a beguilingly hypnotic atmosphere, like Shakespeare's magical green world, where things change shape and identities are transformed . . . With neither cynicism nor sentimentality, Desert Hearts charmingly asserts the centrality of emotion, as well as its prankish surprises.” —Sight & Sound
