Very sad movie.
27 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie in 1975, I was in the 7TH grade. I was taking a class called Interior Design. For some reason my teacher brought this movie to class and showed it to us. I tried so hard not to cry but all the other little girls were crying so I couldn't help myself. I haven't seen it since but for some reason I remember it perfectly. A family goes to a nursing home to visit their grandmother. She is blind and doesn't respond to their presence. They are all uncomfortable and try to leave as soon as possible. The character played by Bruce Davison talks to her about happy memories, birthday parties, Christmas, all shown in flashbacks. This is a movie to which anyone can relate, especially if you have had to put someone you love into a nursing home.
