''The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter'': How romantic is it?
STARRING Alan Arkin, Sondra Locke
THE HEART OF IT A deaf-mute (Arkin, above right) befriends a teenager (Locke, above left) and other townsfolk by giving them a shoulder to cry on, but can't find help for his own problems.
WHY IT'S RIGHT FOR V-DAY Once you've been wowed by Locke's and Arkin's Oscar-nominated performances, you'll get the message that sometimes love means being a good listener.
