In Savannah Sunrise, Shawnee Smith and Pamela Reed lead an all-star cast in this humorous and heartwarming story of a workaholic mom and her family-oriented mother-in-law who are thrown together on a disaster-prone road trip that turns into a life lesson for both.
Straight-laced, type-A personality Joy Miles has to take an unscheduled road trip to drive her forgetful, yet opinionated, mother-in-law, Loraine, from Louisville, Kentucky to Savannah, Georgia. Although initially impatient and frustrated, Joy begins to realize her true affection for Loraine as she takes a front-seat-view of how this strong-willed yet free-spirited woman manages the emotional transition of learning to live life after losing her spouse. Despite their many differences, and with light-hearted adventures at every turn, they discover how much they respect and even need each other. This is an excellent movie and one to watch with your mother, daughter or best friend and one that I’m happy to have in my home entertainment collection.
