Get Low, a good movie

on 6/25/2011

I fully recommend this movie. You can read the synopsis elsewhere. I won’t summarize the story here. I’ll tell you why it’s a good movie. It stars Robert Duvall, Bill Murray, Sissy Spacek, Lucas Black, Bill Cobbs, and Gerald McRaney. The cast is top-rate, and they do the story justice. (Apparently, this is based on a true account.) There is nothing casual or lazy about these actors. They present their characters in ways that are both familiar and new. The writing and production are well done. The story is compelling. It is both serious and humorous. But the humor is not comedic; it is the irony of human nature, the contrast between how we see ourselves and how others see us, and how life itself brings out the truth. This is believable. The viewer can relate to the angst and struggles of the characters. This is a story of failure and grief, of sin and forgiveness, and hope, with emphasis on the common human experience. It is rated PG-13. (I did not find anything obscene or offensive. There is no sexual violence, no gratuitous violence.) Instead of seeing the rating as a prohibitive guideline, perhaps it should be used as suggestion that parents do watch this with their children. It is a good story about the need to reckon with our own failures in life and how grace brings people together. It is a vital lesson for young and old alike.

ReviewSource Orlando Sentinel
Review Director Aaron Schneider, working from a script by Chris Provenzano and C. Gaby Mitchell, walks a delicate line between the silly and the sentimental as we taste Bush's cussedness and meet people (Sissy Spacek, Bill Cobbs) who might have gentler memories of him. Schneider lucked out with his cast - two Oscar winners, with Murray's performance feeling for all the world like a best supporting actor nomination. But McRaney makes you forget he was ever a middling TV actor (Major Dad, Simon & Simon) and Murray, despite tossing off lines that play like comebacks he came up with himself, shows a humanity and vulnerability that you'd never those traits were in his bag of tricks. Credit the director. And Duvall, an American Lear not going gently into that good night, reminds us that it will be a sad day indeed for movie fans when it's about time for him to Get Low.
