"A Trip to Bountiful" (1985, 108 minutes) stars Geraldine Page, who won an Oscar for Best Actress for her performance as an elderly woman determined to visit her childhood home one more time, in defiance of her controlling daughter-in-law. Set in 1947 Houston, Texas, it's a good movie that will stimulate lots of conversation about independence with seniors. Doug Deuchler is a retired teacher/librarian and excellent film historian.
