The jilting of Granny Weather by Porter, Katerine Ann Publication: Thousand Oaks, Ca. monterey media 2005 . 57 min.; color. , Granny Weatherall (Geraldine Fitzgerald) is a spunky old lady of eighty who bosses her doctor and her children. She seems so strong and in control. Yet she has never had the upper hand in her destiny.

Still, her indomitable will to live and act independently infuses the last day of her life. Adapted from the short story by acclaimed writer Katherine Anne Porter (Ship of Fools), The Jilting of Granny Weatherall reminds us of the plight of many women who wait for life to claim them, rather than seek life out for themselves.
