For One More Day

A friend sent me a note about this: "Oprah Winfrey Presents: Mitch Albom's For One More Day" will be on ABC on Sunday December 9
A suicidal former baseball player (Michael Imperioli) is granted one more day with his deceased mother (Ellen Burstyn).

"This film tells the story of Charley, a child of divorce who is always forced to choose between his mother and his father. he grows into a man and starts a family of his own. But one fateful weekend, he leaves his mother to secretly be with his father and she dies while he is gone. This haunts him for years. It leads him to depression and drunkenness. One night, he decides to take his life. But somewhere between this world and the next, he encounters his mother again, in their hometown, and gets to spend one last day with her--the day he missed and always wished he'd had. By the end of this magical day, Charley discovers how little he really knew about his mother, the secret of how her love saved their family, and how deeply he wants the second chance to save his own."

It's Ellen Burstyn week this week! I just got a DVD of The Fountain in the mail a few days ago from another friend and I hope to watch it this weekend. I admire her so much after reading her autobiography and yet I haven't seen very many of her movies!
