Movie Details

When the daughter of widowed Southern dowager Georgia Porter (Gena Rowlands) is killed in an accident, Georgia learns to her horror that she is the grandmother of an African-American child named Jacey (Penny Bae Bridges). At first, Georgia's inbred racism holds sway, and she does everything she can to avoid taking custody of the little girl. Eventually, however, Georgia finds herself sharing Jacey -- and her household -- with the girl's black paternal grandfather, Lou Hastings (Louis Gossett Jr.), who, truth be told, is equally appalled by the situation at hand. The Color of Love made its CBS network debut on March 19, 2000. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
