The Trip to Bountiful
Directed by Peter Masterson
The Trip to Bountiful
Rebecca De Mornay
A richly textured and triumphant tale of an elderly woman's journey home, The Trip to Bountiful stars Geraldine Page (What Ever Happened to Aunt Alice?) in the performance of a lifetime and a role that won her an Academy Award® for Best Actress in a Leading Role. Funny, adventurous and suspenseful, The Trip to Bountiful is perfect on just about every level and is a demonstration of the human spirit. Carrie Watts (Page) is an elderly woman with a weak heart, but of strong determination. Trapped in a tiny apartment under the care of her cowardly son and his shrewish wife, Carrie is determined to escape and return to her girlhood home. Seizing her chance and her meager Social Security check, Carrie sets out on an unforgettable quest to make peace with her past—and the secrets of her heart that draw her ever homeward. Peter Masterson (Full Moon in Blue Water) directed this endearing and uplifting drama co-starring John Heard (Deceived) and Rebecca De Mornay (Runaway Train). Legendary writer Horton Foote (Tender Mercies) wrote the Oscar®-nominated screenplay based on his own play.
