Mending Fences


Mending Fences:
A Hallmark Channel movie, starring Angie Dickinson (“Ocean’s Eleven”) and Laura Leighton (“Melrose Place”).


Angie Dickinson ... Ruth Hanson
Laura Leighton ... Kelly Grant
Shanley Caswell ... Kamilla



Hallmark Channel:

Laura Leighton stars as Kelly Grant, a hard-nosed television journalist who is turned down for a big promotion at work. Angie Dickinson stars as Ruth Hanson, Kelly’s estranged mother, who lives and works on the family’s farm in the small town of Santa Ynez.

One day, Kelly is visited by an old friend who tells her of Ruth’s failing health and urges her to visit. When she arrives on the farm she finds out that the town is suffering from a severe water drought and that an out-of-state company is buying up neighboring farms to build a casino. Kelly uses her investigative skills to uncover a plot against the town and its residents. She also does some much-needed soul searching and comes face-to-face with the reasons she left home years ago and why her relationship with Ruth has since been strained. With the help of her feisty young daughter, Kamilla (Shanley Caswell, “Zoey 101”), Kelly charts a path to help the town, her mother – and ultimately, herself.

Movie Review:

This is a nice movie about coming home and making amends with friends and family. I loved seeing the relationship grow - not only with the mother (Ruth) and daughter (Kelly), but also with the grandmother (Ruth) and granddaughter (Kamilla), as well.

Kelly and Kamilla seem more relaxed in the country... while Ruth and Kelly learn to forgive one another, lean on each other, and come to terms with the past.

It is a very good story with beautiful scenery.

See or Skip:

See... it has a good message of love, family, and forgiveness.
