Exclusive Clip: Home is Where the Heart is

posted by Nell Minow

We are delighted to have an exclusive clip from the warm-hearted family film, Home Is Where the Heart Is — and even more delighted to have two copies to give away.

“Trophy Wife’s” Bailee Madison, Laura Bell Bundy (“Heart of Dixie”), and John C. McGinley (“Scrubs”) star in “Home is Where the Heart Is,” available tomorrow on DVD.

Disillusioned actress Sunny returns to her hometown of Bent Arrow, Texas, to attend her mother’s funeral and provide guardianship for a half sister she never knew, 10-year old Cotton. The dusty old town is struggling to stay alive, but maintains its quaint and quirky charm. It provides solace for an ex-NFL player, Butch, who is coping with a heart-wrenching loss by painting watercolor postcards at a roadside stand. Sunny and Butch bond over their mutual relationship with Cotton, and come up with a plan to help save the town. When tragedy strikes, their plans are derailed, but hope glimmers in the distance.

To enter the contest, send me an email at moviemom@moviemom.com with HOME in the subject line and tell me the best thing about the end of the summer. Don’t forget your address! U.S. addresses only. I’ll pick two winners at random on August 25, 2014. Good luck!
