    Geraldine is a classic in this movie. It ranks up there with STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE. I would love to have this on DVD.

    Such a delightful movie. Geraldine Page's acting was superb. The main character just had to get back to where she had lived, as she had to go back in time to what she remembered to be better days. This is one of my favorite movies. I enjoy watching it whenever I want to, to this day.

    Wonderfully acted, with Geraldine Page finally winning her Oscar, and she is terrific. Fine cast, Carlin Glynn scores in a supporting role. It's a bit of a downer, but there are uplifting moments along the way. The films cinematography is fine, it has a nice look to it.

    Having just seen this movie for the 2nd time, it is now such a favorite that I wish everyone I love could see it. I just may have to own it! It's a spare film, the pace being slow and every word of dialog counting. So many things resonate. The bus depot scenes have such authenticity to them. The decade is represented well. It is a good dose of nostalgia for those who long for old and simpler times.The viewer will see himself in more than one of the characters. By the end of the story, many of the tensions have eased, and more than the central character has hope of realizing their dream. Mrs. Watts' bold actions have given unexpected gifts to strangers as well as her own family. It comes as a relief that, even though the son and daughter-in-law seem less deserving, some of their aspirations have a chance to be realized as well. This can only bode well for Mrs. Watts and the years she has left with them. I had become so invested and moved by the characters, that happily I knew they went home and found things changed, better. The scent of this film remains after it ends, like a fine aroma. Somehow, in my mind, I find myself going back to it time and again.

  • Well deserved Best Actress 1985

    One of Page's best. Watch this alongside "Sweet Bird of Youth."

  • Emotionally Satisfying Movie

    Geraldine Page went on to win an Oscar for Best Actress for her portrayal in 'The Trip to Bountiful'. Famed screenwriter Horton Foote pens an emotional story that brings the moviegoer along a daring escape from the city of an elderly lady (Geraldine Page) whose sole desire is to visit what's left of her beloved home in a forgotten town named Bountiful. We follow her as her unconquered spirit attempts to capture something of the past before she dies. FOUR STARS
