The Portrait is a 1993 television film adapted from the play Painting Churches, directed by Arthur Penn, and starring Gregory Peck and Lauren Bacall. Cecilia Peck, who plays the daughter in the film, is the real-life daughter of actor Gregory Peck and his second wife Veronique Peck.[1]


Artist Margaret Church returns to her parents home to create a portrait of them. Margaret is shocked to discover that her parents have decided to sell their home, and she has trouble accepting the loss of her childhood home. Margaret finishes her portrait, only to believe that her parents dislike it. Eventually she realizes that her parents do not dislike her portrait, and Margaret becomes closer to them once more.
