Storyline

Carrie Watts begrudgingly lives with her busy, overprotective son, Ludie, and pretentious daughter-in-law, Jessie Mae. No longer able to drive and forbidden to travel alone, she wishes for freedom from the confines of the house and begs her son to take her on a visit to her hometown of Bountiful. When he refuses, Mrs. Watts is undeterred and makes an escape to the local bus station, where she befriends Thelma, a young woman traveling home. When Ludie and Jessie Mae discover she is gone, they call in law enforcement to help, but Mrs. Watts is one step ahead of them and convinces the local sheriff to help her on her journey home to Bountiful.

Trip to Bountiful Take 2
4 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is Horton Foote's second film adaptation of his famous play The Trip to Bountiful. Much is the same. In fact, it looks like the same sets and locations were used as the 1985 film. This new version is somewhat shorter and features a new cast, music, and direction. I actually preferred this new cast to the 1985 one (strange since the lead Geraldine Page earned an Oscar for her performance, supported by one of my favorites John Heard). I was more emotionally affected this time around, and I found the film more endearing, less grating, and possibly a little less sappy. However, this new version does lack the beautiful intro scene included in the first film.
