Over the course of nine seasons on “Little House on the Prairie,” we saw Melissa Gilbert grow from a young girl to a loving wife and mother. Melissa is now both an accomplished actress and the author of several books.
Melissa Gilbert’s newest role is that of a devoted grandmother, Ruby, in the heartwarming film “When We Last Spoke.” Based on the novel by Marci Henna, “When We Last Spoke” is the story of two sisters in 1967 who are raised by their grandparents in the small town of Fireside, Texas. Humor, heartbreak, and triumph are served with whipped cream and lots of local nuts in this heartwarming tale of family, friendship, and forgiveness.
About the movie: In 1967, sisters Juliet (Darby Camp) and Evangeline (Chandler Head) are abandoned by their mother at their unsuspecting grandparents’ farm in the small southern town of Fireside. Stunned by their sudden arrival, tender-hearted Walt (Corbin Bernsen) and champion fiddler Ruby (Melissa Gilbert) graciously stand-in for the missing parents and create one blue-ribbon recipe for a loving family. Fireside, home of radio Station KOFF, keeps secrets, broken promises, and to-die-for sundaes that serve as the backdrop for this heartwarming story full of surprises. Top it all off with the unexpected appearance of Walt’s ailing mother—eccentric, Emily Dickinson-quoting Itasca (played by Emmy and Academy Award winner Cloris Leachman), and laughter and tears abound.
I just finished watching “When We Last Spoke”.
A good family movie! Melissa Gilbert, Corbin Bersen & Cloris Leachman were terrific! All seasoned actors bringing love & kindness into this unusual family!
I just have to know how Ruby died…..being one of the central characters in this story….I’m not sure how this could be breezed over? Did I miss something? Does the book go into her death more? Or at all? This was a bit disappointing?
But I enjoyed everything else! ????????
Just watched it too. And that is just what landed me on this page.
I love Little house on the prairie. It has always been my favorite. I would daydream of my ma & pa having that love.
Little House books, movies, and TV series have been a part of my life in one way or another for many years. I really like the idea of seeing Melissa Gilbert playing a grandmother in a new movie.
Absoutely enjoy watching this show!!
Exciting give away
The movie sounds very interesting. Can’t wait to see it.
Little House on the Prairie has a way of whisking me back to my own chidhood. I had the good blessing of having loving devoted parents who adored each other and showed it every day to us children. I recall first reading the books and when the tv show came on that was what we watched as a family. Momma would even do some of the time period crafts with us. Such terrific memories! OH to have that kind of show on prime time again!
