Annie's Point

Synopsis: Richard Eason is flat-out filling his late father's shoes as CEO of an east Coast real estate developing company, so he can't spend nearly as much time with mother Annie and daughter Ella as they would like. Annie is dead-set on visiting a place in California where she and her late husband hoped to build their dream house and convinces Ella, who wants to drop out of school and aspires a singing career, to drive along. Ill-prepared but tempestuously stubborn, they embark on an adventurous road trip, where Ella meets hunky waiter Scott Tardy. Learning Annie needs surgery soon, Richard gives chase.

What do you think of

my latest masterpiece, Eliot?

I know it isn't

one of my best.

But it does remind me of

how pretty it was back here.

Oh, things are fine.

But I do miss you, Eliot.

Good morning.

Mr. Eason, you're late.

Here's your mail.

Any calls?

Your mother... Twice.

Uh, Mr. Weller again.

He wasn't too thrilled

About the fact that

you never called him back.

Anything else?

And Mr. Backis

is waiting for you.

Richard, I know that our bank

Has been doing business

with your father

And his company for 50 years.

But we're, um...

Concerned about the

scope of this project.

Everything is going

according to plan so far.

Well, Richard, the board

approved the project

With your father at the helm.

Since his passing,

There has been the

question of...

Whether I'm up to the task.

Your father had

decades of experience,

And that experience is what

got this project off the ground.

Since my father died,

we're on schedule

To break ground in

three weeks with no delays.

Mr. Eason?

It's your mother, Richard.

Well, have her

call me back.

Honey, this is the third

time she's called.

She says that

it's important.

I think you should

take the call.

Ok, put her through. This

will just take a second.

Mom, I'm really busy.

I need a favor.

This new easel

isn't working for me,

And my old one's

up in the garage attic.

I can't right now.

I'm in the middle of

a very important meeting.

Ok, I'll just

go get it myself.

But if I fall...

If I break my hip...

Mom, I'm gonna have

to call you back. Fine.

And don't climb

up that ladder.


%% Find that someone special %%

%% give him love,

make him your own %%



Ella bear? It's grandma.

Hi, grandma, how are you?

You won't believe

what your father did.

My guess is it's more of

what he didn't do.

I can't paint

with this new easel,

The one your father

bought me.

And my old one is way up

in the garage attic,

And he says he's

too busy to come get it

For his own mother.

Yeah, grandma, I don't know

what you want me to do.

It'd take me a couple

of hours to get there.

Damn easel!

I never expected to be

a struggling artist

At my age.

That was a joke.

What's the matter?

Are you sure

everything's ok?


How are your classes?

They're ok.

You're doing well?

Yeah, my grades are fine.

Are you still

writing songs down

In that book of yours?

Sort of.

You sound so sad,

Ella bear.


Look, Ella, there's no

one keeping you there.

You can do

whatever you want.

The world is open to

all of your dreams.

Whatever that means.





Mom, I told you not...

Not to climb the ladder.

Your father

isn't around anymore,

And you're too busy,

So how was I supposed

to get my easel?

Plus I found this painting

of Annie's point.

That's great. Now, get off the

ladder before you hurt yourself.

I still have to get

my easel.

Get off. Step off.

I'll get it.

Come on.

Be careful.

Mom, why are you


I'm fine.

You could've fallen

off the ladder

And killed yourself.

I didn't fall, and

I'm still on the earth.

Now, will you please just

go up and get my easel?

I always meant

to finish this one.

I know this is a very

difficult time for you.

But I can't be with you

24 hours a day.

I was asking

for five minutes.

Can't an old woman get

any help around the house?

How would you feel about

getting an apartment?

Or one of those condos

down by the lake?

This place appraised for

much higher than you expected.

Your father would

never hear of it.

Mom, this house

is too big for you.
