The Trip To Bountiful
My Rating:
(out of 5 stars)
3 Stars
The Trip To Bountiful Poster
Primary Location: First Saw:In Theatre Saw at/with: With Jessica at York Square
Rating: PG Year: 1985 Category: Drama
Director: Peter Masterson Time: 106 min. Writer: Horton Foote

Mine: 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.
