The Trip to Bountiful / Betty & Coretta
This Double Feature contains two incredible and inspiring stories with strong female leads. In THE TRIP TO BOUNTIFUL, Carrie Watts (Cicely Tyson) begrudgingly lives with her busy, overprotective son, Ludie, and pretentious daughter-in-law, Jessie Mae. No longer able to drive and forbidden to travel alone, she wishes for freedom from the confines of the house and begs her son to take her on a visit to her hometown of Bountiful. Vanessa Williams and Blair Underwood also star in this television adaptation of American playwright and screenwriter Horton Foote's Tony-nominated play. In BETTY AND CORETTA, Two extraordinary women - Coretta Scott King, wife of Martin Luther King, Jr.., and Dr. Betty Shabazz, wife of Malcolm X - come to life in BETTY & CORETTA. After their husbands' tragic assassinations, they developed a unique friendship spanning three decades as they carried on the Civil Rights movement while supporting their families as single mothers. Through their strength and dignity, they became role models for millions of women.
