Based on a true story, Get Low is set during the Great Depression, in the Appalachian hills of Georgia. Robert Duvall stars in a moving performance as Felix Bush, who after losing the love of his life 40 years before, has lived like a hermit ever since. With death on the horizon and guilt weighing him down, the old hermit, feared and despised by his neighbors, decides to go out with a party. As he tells funeral director Frank Quinn (Bill Murray), "Time for me to get low", and he hires Quinn to organize a "funeral party" so he can hear what the locals have to say about him before he's actually dead.
While preparing for the big day, he reconnects with Charlie (Bill Cobbs), an old preacher friend, and Mattie (Sissy Spacek), an old flame who returned to the county after her husband's death. Their encounters, which bring a gentle sweetness to his wearied soul, encourage Felix to share the truth he's kept bottled up inside for decades, that leads to a confession about the mystery of what actually happened 40 years ago-and a chance for redemption and healing, for Bush and all his neighbors.
"Subtle, quirky and low-key... extends empathy to nearly every character. Get Low takes guilt, punishment and forgiveness seriously..."
