The Simple Life of Noah Dearborn is a 1999 made-for-television film, first broadcast on 9 May 1999 on CBS. This movie stars Sir Sidney Poitier as the title character, a rural Georgia carpenter, Noah Dearborn. George Newbern plays a developer trying to force Dearborn off his land; he tries to enlist the help of his psychologist girlfriend, played by Mary-Louise Parker, a move which backfires badly. Newbern's character tries to have Dearborn declared mentally incompetent; the effort fails, mostly because of the efforts of Parker's character, who realizes why Dearborn is held in esteem by his neighbors.[1]

For her performance in The Simple Life of Noah Dearborn, Dianne Wiest was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress - Miniseries or a Movie.[2]
