Where The Heart Is

Question: When Willy Jack picks up the girl on the side of the road (after leaving Novalee at Wal-Mart), why doesn't he want her to put the last of her bags in the backseat?

Chosen answer: I think he motions for her to put them in the backseat simply because nothing else will fit in the trunk. I'm sure that it's safe to assume that he and Novalee had placed all their belongings in there already, so there wasn't much room left.

Question: Why was the poster of Queen Amidala (shown as Novalee runs out of Wal-Mart) supposed to be taken out of the movie?

Chosen answer: Because Natalie Portman played Queen Amidala, and it would have detracted from the reality of "Where the Heart Is" to see the leading lady in costume for another of her films.

Question: I read on movietome.com that Uma Thurman played a girl named Daphne in this movie. I have watched over and over and read the end credits and can't find her anywhere. Is she in this movie?

Chosen answer: Wrong movie. She is in Where The Heart Is (1990), not Where The Heart Is (2000).

Question: What exactly was wrong with Forney's sister? I know he said she started drinking when he was younger but why did she have to be taken care of all the time?

Chosen answer: She has been drinking since she was younger, and died from alchohol related disease.
