Both that film and Love Field (1992) explore themes relating to racial issues.

"Love Field" in Dallas in Texas, USA is both the name of a public airport and a neighborhood situated in the north-west district of the city. Its use in the film refers to the Love Field Airport, which is also known as Dallas Love Field, as this is where President John F. Kennedy, First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy, Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson, Second Lady Lady Bird Johnson, and their entourage, which included Secret Service agents, had landed in Air Force One before the fatal and tragic motorcade journey in Dallas in Texas, USA.

In the film, Louise Hallett (Michelle Pfeiffer) is so affected and moved by the assassination of Democrat American President John F. Kennedy that her character embarks on a cross-country trip to attend his public funeral. According to show-business trade-paper 'Variety', the character of Lurene "imagines a kinship with [First Lady] Jacqueline Kennedy, since both lost infant children". However, Lurene's blond bombshell image actually evokes that of movie star Marilyn Monroe, whom JFK is well known to have in real life as having an affair with [See: Revealed: JFK's Women: The Scandals (2006) and "Marilyn and the Kennedys" aka Say Goodbye to the President (1985)]. Janet Maslin in a review published on 11th December 1992 in The New York Times commented that Lurene "feels a special psychic bond with Jacqueline Kennedy", "defining herself visibly in terms of Mrs. Kennedy's appeal", but looks like " . . . a cross between the young Mrs. Kennedy and the Marilyn Monroe of The Misfits (1961)".

"This film is an example of a representation of the assassination of [Democrat American President] John F. Kennedy in popular culture" as stated by the Wikipedia website and "though the movie encompasses other issues besides the assassination, it portrays one facet of the public reaction to the event."
