Get Low...Movie review

Sometimes truth really is stranger than fiction. I loved this movie. Robert Duvall shines as Felix (Bush) Breazeale, a quirky old recluse that has become the subject of much malicious gossip among the local townsfolk. His unruly appearance does little to dispel the rumors the day he strolls into town to visit the local funeral parlor. It is there he meets Frank Quinn (Bill Murray), the parlor's owner who he enlists to arrange his funeral, while he is still alive. While I don't think Murrays character was intended to be humorous the actors comedic genious comes through none the less. I particularly love the scene where he nearly swerves off the road when he learns that Duvall's character once had a go with his characters current love interest. Priceless. The characters in this film are multi-layered and well performed. The talented ensemble cast includes Sissy Spacek and Lucas Black. At the funeral we finally learn reasons for this master carpenters self imposed isolation and it is moving to say the least. So on the Heart Chart... Get Low gets four out of five hearts ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
