A Place Called Home-Be It Ever So Humble ***

Ann-Margret definitely turns in a very good performance here as a widow living in a gorgeous mansion in the woods. Her eyesight is failing but she has undying memories of her husband who has been gone for 8 years.

The husband's nephew and niece want to get the property to develop it and sell. Sounds like an awfully familiar theme.

Along drops in a drifter whose wife has abandoned him. He comes with his daughter. The drifter is hired by Margret to do chores and of course Tula (Margret) forms an attachment with the child.

There is a social worker who invariably falls for the drifter. When the latter spurns the niece, this adds further fuel to the fire. The nephew and niece make sure to have him beaten up, have his identity thoroughly checked, and threaten the social worker accordingly.

Had they found something real juicy with the drifter involving a court case and eventual exoneration, this would have made for a far more interesting film. Nonetheless, we see Ann-Margret vying for independence and eventually finding a new love in the town doctor.

The happy ending shows that a new family can unite and that the greedy can't always get their way.

Another Beautiful A-M performance!

Ann-Margret does it again! I've been going MAD waiting for this movie and now that I've finally been able to see it I can honestly say it was WELL worth the wait! A-M only picks the winners and she truly SHINES as Tula, an aging recluse whos feistiness and strong willed personality keep you on the edge of your seat throughout the entire film. She's mysterious, angelic, haunting, and very emotional as this character and even a non A-M lover would be interested in this one. Her chemistry with former Whorehouse co-star Gary Sandy is excellent, and the relationship between Tula and Cali (Shailene Woodley) is wonderful to watch develop. I enjoyed all the actors performances and they seemed to give it their all. The peaceful setting in Lake Tahoe is gorgeous and makes for a wonderful background & co-star in itself. I truly hope the academy of television arts and science FINALLY recognizes A-M this year with an Emmy, which she has so rightly deserved for YEARS now! This ones a winner, and A-M is AMAZZZZZING as always!!! I couldn't rave about her enough:) My only complaint is her wardrobe. Sure, she's playing an older lady, but there is a point in the film where she is made-over and well, to be honest, as gorgeous as A-M is to this day, they should have her prancing around in her trademark toreador pants again lol! Anyway check this one out. You won't want to miss it!

It's a touching story

I was browsing through what's on the cable TV one morning, looking for something good. I never expected to find such a touching story which I can relate to in many ways. I found "A Place Called Home".

The movie is about an old widow who lost her husband who she calls "Captain". She lives alone by the lake in a beautiful house with roses, a variety of other plants and trees all around her. In the beginning of the movie, you'll get a glimpse of a rare, beautiful blue heron flying across the sky. The scenery in the movie is breathtaking.

The recluse, old lady is called Tula. She has a nephew and niece, both waiting for her to go "lame" or to pass on so they can inherit her entire land and the house to replace it with the so-called "improvement" for the town, namely a golf course and several hot shot hotel or malls. They were these greedy people only caring for money, without caring for what their aunt's feeling. She was already pretty much cut off from the outside world with her tiny "sanctuary" at the old house.

But then one day, a drifter and his daughter came to her doorstep. That's when things started to turned around.

I loved this movie because I could relate to it so much, not just in Tula's character but also in the drifter Henry Ford and his daughter California (Cali).

One line that really struck a chord in me was when Cali said to Tula after an argument with her father (aka Hank). She asked Tula, "Have you ever felt so alone in this world and the person the only family you had doesn't care for you?" I broke down at that, but of course, Hank loves his daughter. Only he has a hard time showing it and that Cali doesn't know.

I love a movie with good endings - this one is no exception. To truly experience the beauty of life's triumphs over utter hopelessness, you're going to have to watch this one: A Place Called Home. :) p.s. I cried, too.
