Kind of slow moving, but very enjoyable. A touching performance by Page. Heartfelt.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis:
Leisurely, richly textured filmization of Horton Foote's 1953 television play (later done on Broadway) about a widow, living unhappily with her son and daughter-in-law, determined to make her way home to Bountiful, Texas, for one last look. Page won well-deserved Oscar for her heartbreaking performance, but entire cast is excellent. Fine filmmaking debut for stage director Masterson.
