Academy Award® winner Robert Duvall (1984, Best Actor, Tender Mercies) is Felix Bush, the “Hermit of Caleb County,” a man so haunted by his secrets that he has lived in quiet desolation in the Tennessee backwoods for over 40 years. Realizing that he is near his own mortality, Bush decides to have a “living funeral party,” inviting people to tell their stories about him. Enlisting the help of Frank Quinn(Golden Globe® winner Bill Murray, 2004, Best Actor in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy, Lost in Translation) and Buddy Robinson (Lucas Black, Legion), Bush goes through a process of self-discovery, allowing him to deal with his past secrets, including ones involving old flame (and new widow) Mattie (Academy Award®winner Sissy Spacek, 1980, Best Actress, Coal Miner's Daughter).
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Subtle to a fault, this perfectly cast ensemble drama is lifted by typically sharp performances from Robert Duvall and Bill Murray.

Common Sense Says
Quiet character study is stellar but won't appeal to kids.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Get Low is a quiet, thoughtful, indie character study set in rural Tennessee during the Great Depression. It's based on a true story about an old man (Felix Bush) looking back on the mistakes of his life and trying to rectify them. Infrequent strong language includes "son of a bitch" several times and "bulls--t" once. A past house fire is briefly shown, and a past fight when Bush's life was in danger is briefly described by him. A few blows are shown when a man defends himself and his mule from a bully throwing rocks. Bush drinks and smokes several times; another important character is seen several times with a flask.
