Rambling Rose (1991), starring Laura Dern, pretends to be consequential but isn’t.  It’s as trivial as that 1984 flick with Sally Field, Places in the Heart, which at least features a nice slice of Christianity.  Rose has no real interest at all in Christianity and no good reason to exist.  If its nonexistence were a fact, we would be spared Elmer Bernstein‘s saccharine music and a slight adolescent vulgarity.
