Geraldine Page deserves the Oscar she finally won in TRIP TO BOUNTIFUL. This is a beautiful film, and well directed -- very easy to empathize with Page seeing the end of her days approaching and wanting to go home... just once, go home before she dies. It is also easy to want to slap some sense into her hen-pecked husband, and even easier to despise her daughter-in-law who each month steals Page's social security check, selfishly spends every penny on her ego-centric self, and then also expects the aging Page to clean their house on a daily basis. Page is fatiqued, physically and spiritually, she needs a journey home, and this is it. At the very beginning of the film the scene of a young mother (Page) chasing her young son (Hurt) through a meadow filled with Texas Bluebonnets while music plays in the background from the Christian hymn 'Softly and Tenderly', sung by Cynthia Clawson, tugs at your heart, letting the viewer know that they too are in for a journey. Fantastic film. And finally in DVD. Don't miss it!
