I Got Low
Last night on one of our glorious date nights, I had the privilege of seeing "Get Low" at Market Street. Dubbed as a "true tall tale," this film did EVERYTHING you want a movie to do. It started off with an interesting premise - an old hermit (Robert Duvall) decides to enlist the help of a local funeral director (Bill Murray) to throw himself a funeral... before he dies. Duvall's character is clever and charming, eccentric and painfully honest. It's a really beautiful, funny, heartwarming film about Tennessee in the 1930s, but more importantly it is about forgiveness. It's one of those Sundance gems, so it may not be playing in a theatre than you. It's worth checking out. I promise it will make you smile.
