“If Robert Duvall doesn’t get an Oscar for this film there is no justice!” We hear patrons making remarks like this after every show. This movie should not be missed!
Felix is a miserable old hermit who has lived in an isolated cabin for the past 38 years. He catches word that an old friend has passed away and hatches a plan to throw himself a “funeral party.” He even wants the townsfolk, who either despise him or fear him, to attend the party and share all the crazy stories they may have heard about creepy old Felix. Is he a fugitive? A murderer? Or something worse?
Director Aaron Schneider places his humorous fable in 1930s Tennessee, and his attention to period detail is extraordinary. Bill Murray and Sissy Spacek are exceptional, but it’s Robert Duvall’s masterful performance as Felix that brings everything together in this heartfelt story about guilt, loss, and forgiveness. trailer
