“My memory of “Desert Hearts” isn’t so much about plot as about feelings. I believe it’s the first movie I saw which convincingly portrayed lesbians in love. That movie — the feelings it evoked — stayed with me long after I forgot details of plot and character. I don’t know if I would have the same response if I saw it again today (more than 35 years after its release), but I’d like to find out!” — Eunice Fisher
