Savannah Sunrise

The road trip of a lifetime begins when the uplifting family comedy, Savannah Sunrise, arrives on DVD at Walmart, Digital HD and On Demand May 16 from Anchor Bay Entertainment. Shawnee Smith and Pamela Reed star as a daughter and mother-in-law who discover that they need each other more than they know after a disastrous road trip gives way to understanding. Praised as, “a delightful family-friendly movie filled with both humor and heartwarming moments” by the Parents Television Council, the film was awarded the Dove Approval for All Ages. With bonus content like cast interviews and a behind-the-scene featurette, the Savannah Sunrise DVD will be available at Walmart for the suggested retail price of $14.98.

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.  

My Thoughts

In this film, Joy Miles plays a mom who never puts down her phone. She has little in common with her mother-in-law, but still decides to help her move. While on the road, Joy starts to appreciate the advantages of Loraine's free spirit. Though she has a high-stakes project on the line, she learns to put her phone down for a while and appreciate the little things in life. 

This is a really fun family film about family that shows us that a mother-in-law isn't always that bad. There are lots of laughs, but also some heartwarming moments as well. Both women learn a few things about each other, and about the importance of family.
