.......THE TRIP TO BOUNTIFUL - 5 Stars Watched the old, sad movie a long time ago, but it has always stayed with me. An elderly Mrs. Watts just wants out of her little apartment and out from under the thumb of her son and annoying daughter-in-law for one last visit to her old homestead. After many attempts, she finally procures and hides her pension check from the wicked daughter-in-law, sneaks out....takes a local bus to the train station....walks from there to the bus station and has quite the adventure. Wonderful story and ending. .......TENDER MERCIES - 4 Stars First time read of this screenplay and have not seen the movie. In this story set in a little Texas town, an aging once-famous country music performer struggles from a drunken past of mistakes to move forward. Finding work at a local motel-gas station, he finds a new life, continues to write music....and then....the accident. Religious undertones question WHY one person lives while another dies. .......TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD - 5 Stars Read the novel....saw the movie, but first time reading the actual screenplay....so good! "That summer I was six years old"....says Scout aka Jean Louise Finch. In Maycomb, Alabama everyone is poor....some more so than others. There's a lawyer in this small town story....his two rambunctious children, Jem and Scout....a scary "BOO" neighbor.....a scarier dark Halloween night....accusations of rape....a trial....lies....stupid prejudices against a good man....and justice for one in the end. You NEVER want to hurt a mockingbird! Wonderful 5 star anthology of classic screenplays.
