Picks and Pans Review: Dalva

UPDATED 02/26/1996 at 01:00 AM EST Originally published 02/26/1996 at 01:00 AM EST

ABC (Sun., March 3, 9 p.m. ET)


The title sounds like a painkiller but is in fact the name of a Nebraska ranch heiress (Farrah Fawcett) longing for the son she gave up for adoption. She's also tangled up with two lovers, Peter Coyote and Powers Boothe, and a mystery involving her grandfather (Rod Steiger, largely recumbent) and the Lakota Indians. Beyond that, there's no way to explain adequately the strange pleasures of this inane movie, which lopes along for 2 hours like a buffalo tripping in a field of poppies.
