A Classic

by Cammie on Sep 17, 2009

This is an under-rated movie that deserves more attention. It is character-driven, powerful in its underlying themes about life and death. It is one of those movies with such strong characters that you end up hating and loving the movie at the same time. I would recommend it for anyone who is interested in literature, in writing, or simply in pondering the deeper meanings of home, of family, and of 'going home' at the end of life.


Golden tale of last wishes

by huskymom on Jan 5, 2009

A wonderful story line, great acting, great photography and great direction came together to produce "The Trip to Bountiful," a yarn set in an era before many of us were born, but carrying a timeless message about patience, respect for the last wishes of others and precious memories. Geraldine Page won the Academy Award for best actress in 1985 for her moving portrayal of an old woman who simply wanted one more trip back to her childhood home. She finally arrived, despite all efforts to stop her, only to learn that her childhood friend, the sole occupant of the old town, had just passed away. We all hold in our minds certain pictures of places which never fade, holding steadfast in our minds when these places have changed or are gone forever. They may fade, but they are still golden. Thanks to everyone who helped make this film.
