A Place Called Home is a 2004 movie that tells the story of a young woman named Gwen, played by Ann-Margret. Gwen has been living in New York City for many years, but she decides to return to her hometown of Piney Creek, Texas, after many years away. She has a troubled history with her family, especially with her mother, but she hopes that coming home will help her find some peace and closure.

When Gwen arrives in Piney Creek, she soon realizes that things have changed a lot over the years. Her mother has passed away, and her father is very sick and doesn't have long to live. Gwen is also surprised to find that her childhood home has been turned into a bed and breakfast by her sister, Judy, played by Rebecca McFarland. Even though she's happy to see her sister again, she's also hurt that her childhood home is now a business venture.

As Gwen tries to reconnect with her family and find a way to reconcile with her past, she meets a local man named Hank, played by Matthew Settle. Hank is a charming and handsome man who runs a local horse ranch. Gwen and Hank quickly hit it off, and Hank helps her deal with her emotions and come to terms with her family and her past.

Throughout the movie, we see Gwen struggle to fit back into her hometown and connect with her family, especially her sister, who has taken on the role of the family matriarch. While they share memories of their childhood together, Judy seems resentful of Gwen's long absence and accuses her of not caring about the family. Gwen tries to repair their relationship, but it seems like it's too late.

In the end, Gwen is able to find some peace and closure, thanks in part to her relationship with Hank. She realizes that she can't change the past, but she can move forward and make the most of the time she has left with her family. The film ends on a hopeful note as Gwen returns to New York City with a new perspective on life and family.

Overall, A Place Called Home is a heartwarming and emotional film that explores themes of family, love, and forgiveness. The performances by Ann-Margret, Matthew Settle, and Rebecca McFarland are all excellent, and the film's beautiful cinematography captures the small-town Texas charm perfectly. It's a film that will leave viewers feeling uplifted and inspired.
