Synopsis / Plot
In Texas in the 1930s, an ambitious West Texas schoolmarm (Renee Zellweger) with literary inclinations is drawn romantically to an idiosyncratic writer (Vincent D'Onofrio) of pulp horror tales, despite his virtually Oedipal attachment to his convalescent mother and his other emotional troubles. A tender, offbeat romantic story based on the memoir "One Who Walked Alone," written by Novalyne Price of her brief affair with "Conan the Barbarian" creator Robert E. Howard.
