Synopsis

No longer able to drive and forbidden to travel alone, Carrie Watts is trapped in an apartment in 1940’s Houston, Texas with a controlling daughter-in-law and a hen-pecked son. She plans her escape to her idealised Bountiful, the small Texas town of her youth which she still refers to as “home.”

MUBI's take

Geraldine Page won a much (and long) deserved Academy Award for her winning performance as the stubborn Mrs. Watts in this film genteelly dedicated to the push and pull between past and present, small town and city, mother and children (not to mention in-laws). Full of small, sentimental pleasures.
