Cicely Tyson reprises her Tony Award-winning and Emmy-nominated performance as the frail but feisty Carrie Watts in Horton Foote's beloved American classic The Trip to Bountiful, a story of intergenerational family conflict directed by Michael Wilson. Living in a cramped apartment in Houston with her dutiful son Ludie (Golden Globe nominee Blair Underwood) and bossy daughter-in-law Jessie Mae (Grammy and Tony nominee Vanessa Williams), the elderly Carrie dreams of making one final journey to her hometown of Bountiful, Texas, which she was forced to abandon twenty years earlier. With pension check in hand, her last journey to Bountiful begins. Filled with joyous gospel hymns including an unforgettably moving "Blessed Assurance," this American treasure is a masterpiece of memory, mortality and the undeniable, universal yearning for the warmth of home.
