Lifetime is the latest to snag a Terry McMillian (Waiting to Exhale) novel and give it the movie treatment.
A Day Late and A Dollar Short follows Viola Price–played by Whoopi Goldberg– on a journey to fix her fractured family before an asthma attack that she fears will kill her. She must mend her relationship with her estranged husband (Ving Rhames), her 4 children and few grandkids. The Stephen Tolkin-directed picture also deals with drug addiction, teen pregnancy, sibling rivalry, adultery and the prison system.
Mehki Phifer, Kimberly Elise, Tichinia Arnold, Ving Rhames and Anika Noni Rose join the Academy Award winner to complete this dynamic cast. The original movie debuts on Saturday April 19th at 8pm EST on Lifetime.
