Worth the wait.

I remember this movie when it came on TV back in the 80's when I was 15. I'm not sure why or how I started watching it and had it left an impression on me that I found myself thinking of this movie from time to time through the years. I found it on here and had to buy it. The years had warped the story and it was refreshing to see it again for the first time. If you like a off Broadway feel to a TV movie, it is a great watch.

I never forgot this wonderful made-for-television film, which I first saw in 1987, with its sharp characterizations, gorgeous scenery, and evocative instrumental music. An elderly widow faces the tough decision between remaining on the hill where she lived most of her life, or leaving It to stay with her adult son in another state. If there's too much religion in this film, it's more than compensated for by great acting and a unique story.

not a Hallmark movie

The story is good, the actors are great! The ending not so much - very disappointing. I really disliked how the writers ended the story. It was not what you would expect for a happy ending today, and really left you hanging as well. It was just plain sad.

This is an excellent movie. I added it to my John Denver collection. I recommend this movie. I can't count how many times I watched it. I, also, liked Jessica Tandy and Hugh. Cronyn. If you never saw him in concert, you don't know what you missed. I had the privilege of seeing him twice in concert and was thankful I saw him before he died.

Super Movie

This is a heart warming story and another great combined performance by Jessica Tandy and Hume Cronyn. My only disappointment was that it apparently is not available as a DVD.

EVERY person owes it to themselves to get this one ...

EVERY person owes it to themselves to get this one and play it over and over. The ending will stay with you for the rest of your life! PROMISE.
There are no endings in this life; only discoveries! What a message and delivered flawlessly well. As I grow older, the heart of this little movie has deeper and more powerful meaning. If you want to spend an hour or so that will make a difference .... choose this one!

Not what I was expecting but I really did enjoy this movie. I love these two in all they do. However it is kinda sad to know the three lead actors are no longer with us, but they do live on in their movies. Watch the special about how they made the movie, gives some interesting back ground on it.
