Lifetime remakes Horton Foote’s classic “The Trip to Bountiful” with Cicely Tyson, Vanessa Williams, Blair Underwood and Keke Palmer. It’s the story of an elderly woman who lives with her overprotective son and yearns for a little freedom. When he refuses to take her to visit her hometown of Bountiful, she escapes to the bus station to make the trip on her own. The story was originally written by Foote for TV (and was also on Broadway), and Geraldine Page won an Oscar for her role in the 1985 film version. It debuts Saturday at 8 p.m. but should repeat prodigiously.
