5.0 out of 5 stars Your trip through life 12 Nov 2007
Format:DVD
This is Geraldine Page at her very very best, portraying an elderly woman living unhappily with her son and daughter-in-law. The two women don't get along, the daughter-in-law resenting her intrusion in their lives and seeing her presence as a big sacrifice to have to make for her marriage. The steadily growing loneliness of Geraldine Page's character and her journey into her memories of what was and what could have been touches many themes and portrays the wishes and dreams of many ordinary people beautifully. She decides to go back to Bountiful, the only place where she ever was really happy. Would the expectations created by her memories (coloured by the passing of time) be met by the reality of present day Bountiful? Or is it the journey, not the destination, that is all important? This you will have to see for yourself and make up your own mind - because this is a "must-see" film. It will make you think about your own plans for living as an older person, it will make you think about what is really important in your life, it will make you think!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the most beautiful movies ever made. 20 Feb 2012
By Marco M
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I saw this on the TV years ago. My Mum had turned it on and I walked into the lounge room just to stretch my legs soon after it started. Within 2 minutes of watching it, I was hooked, and by the end both my Mum and I were sobbing. Since that night I've watched it about 10 times. This is one of the most beautiful movies I've ever seen, Geraldine Page's performance is one of the greatest pieces of acting ever put on film. (She won the Oscar for it.) Anyone who appreciates good cinema should buy this, and at this price it's a no-brainer (50p incl postage).

5.0 out of 5 stars a forgotten gem 5 May 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This film is on a par with,"Tender mercies," as what i would call a forgotten gem of modern american cinema.The film has a subtle Christian message in the background as religious geraldine page seeks to visit her childhood home of bountiful once more before she dies.This is a delicate,moving film that grabs the viewer by the heartstring and won"t let go until the final credits have finished.Miss Page gives a wonderful performance that has to rank among the best of the 80"s.She definitely deserved her oscar.Travel with her as she goes to bountiful and you will be rewarded with a truly moving movie experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rediscovering a place in time. 16 Aug 2013
Format:DVD
Geraldine Page...what more do you need? what a fine actress she was and she will break your heart in this film, close to her last before her death. An elderly woman stuck living with her son and irritating daughter-in-law in a cramped apartment having spent her youth and most of her life on her farm in Bountiful, working the land and raising her child. She is ill now and has to live with her son and his wife, almost as a prisoner in their home. Carrie dreams of the past, her old life and friends, her old home in the country and makes one last effort - having been thwarted previously - to go back there and pick up where she left off. It cannot happen because we cannot resurrect the past but hope spurs Carrie on. She finds her old home derelict, the fields untended, the town abandoned and her one remaining girlhood friend recently passed on. But it is not for nothing...Carrie finds a resolution in her trip to the past. Anyone who has longed to rediscover a place in time when they were their happiest will find this film will strike a chord with them.

Two interesting things in this film: Carrie's son and daughter-in-law sleep in separate single beds in their bedroom yet he laments not having children....

watch out for Geraldine Page's twin sons from her marriage to actor Rip Torn. They are standing behind her as she is buying her ticket to Bountiful at the bus station.

If nothing else, simply enjoy a tour de force performance by the late, great Geraldine Page. Acting students...watch and learn from this master.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cinematic Gold 21 Oct 2012
Format:DVD
I totally agree with the previous reviewer - this is absolutely top notch stuff and i cannot urge you strongly enough to watch this quiet and shining jewel of a movie. From the opening credits you just know that you are in for something truly special, I cannot fault any of the performances in this but Geraldine Page is truly superb. If you are not moved to tears by this beautifully unfolding story you must have a heart of stone. Buy it and be rewarded by one of the best cinematic performances you will ever see. Beautiful.
