PEEGE

by Randal Kleiser (Director, Writer)

 

Cast: Bruce Davison, Barbara Rush, Jeanette Nolan

An ailing elderly woman is paid a perfunctory visit by her family while she sits despondently in a nursing home. Nobody can get through to her except for her young grandson, who talks to her about the happy times they shared between the two of them when she was well.

“Peege” was one of 25 films added on Dec. 27, 2007, to the National Film Registry of the Library of Congress, which recognized this renowned production as “extremely moving.”
