Arriving just in time for the holiday season, the LIFETIME GOLD COLLECTION features four of Lifetime’s most popular Original Movies in one specially-priced DVD set. Kathy Bates (Misery, “Harry’s Law”), Blythe Danner (Meet the Parents series), Sarah Chalke (“Scrubs”) and Thora Birch (American Beauty) star in these four inspiring films about people overcoming great odds – and the first three are based on true stories.
The three-time Emmy-nominated “Homeless to Harvard: The Liz Murray Story” stars Thora Birch as a homeless 15-year-old girl who doesn’t let her circumstances prevent her from attending Harvard University. In “Why I Wore Lipstick to My Mastectomy”, Sarah Chalke plays Geralyn Lucas, a 27-year-old woman with a breast cancer diagnosis whose story is an empowering reminder that attitude is everything. “Ambulance Girl”, directed by and starring Academy Award-winner Kathy Bates, tells the stirring – and hilarious – story of a woman who overcomes depression by becoming a volunteer EMT. And three-time Emmy-nominated “We Were The Mulvaneys” (Beau Bridges, Blythe Danner), based on a novel by Joyce Carol Oates, follows a “perfect” family that struggles to keep their only daughter’s rape a shameful secret. Prepare to laugh, cry, and think again about what is possible in the face of adversity.
