Get Low [2009]

An exercise in subtlety (at times too subtle, if that’s possible) and expectedly slow-paced (at times too slow-paced), Get Low is heartwarming and funny. The beautiful music and the cast are the highlights: Robert Duvall shines and receives great support from Sissy Spacek, Bill Murray and Lucas Black, a dream cast for first-time director Aaron Schneider. Though he did a good job, a film like this would’ve fit the Coen brothers better than True Grit did.
