Sitting on 35 acres of Georgia land coveted by a shopping mall developer, 90+years-old Noah Dearborn is untainted by modern life. He's never heard of the Beatles, and his only interest is his woodworking, in which he excels. The girlfriend of one of the developers is a psychologist, and is asked to evaluate Noah for a possible move to have him declared incompetent. But she soon falls under his spell of a simple life and becomes his ally in his fight to keep his land. Written by

Ms.M. Louise-Parker and Mr. S. Poitier as well as the rest of the cast and crew did an excellent job in presenting this heartfelt story. A story that told the truth for so very many people in this country that will in no way have such a spectacular ending. Many times it is the children that take away their parents properties. They break the spirit of their loved ones in conjunction with land developers/or whom ever the interested party may be, and most often the victims are committed or die of a broken heart. It did not matter that Dearborn was so perfect, (Guess Whose Coming to Dinner?) most victims are not clean and healthy and strong. The powers that be were determined. In realty Louise-Parker would have been taken away never to be seen again. The performances of Dearborn made all of us feel much more than they presented to the viewers. This is writing and production at its finest with a happy upbeat ending white puppy and all. These are the movies that we as a people would have return to our screens. If not completely, then at least several times a year. At least they offer hope and faith...something that this planet is at this time so very short on. To The 'Simple Life of Noah Dearborn' we say thank you and BRAVO!!!!!!
