Here is the official trailer for the film: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mp_sSPJp1oE Get Low follows Robert Duvall as Felix Bush, a hermit who lives deep in the backwoods of Tennessee.В  There are many local legends about Felix Bush, some which seem to be well-founded, and others that appear to be tall-tales.В  Nearing the end of his life, Bush wants to throw his own funeral party before his death, and wishes that his guests share stories, good or bad, about himself.В  outdoor moviesThe old man works on gathering hundreds of folks from all around, and offers to give his land away upon his death if attendees pay a 5 dollar donation to attend the funeral.В  But Bush has his own agenda, and desires to come clean before all in explaining what really happened in a tragic circumstance decades earlier. outdoor moviesGet Low is ultimately a film about redemption, forgiveness, and the significance of those personal relationships that tie us together as human beings.В  The film is slow-paced and easy going, and definitely reflects the way of life that the region held in the early 1900's.В  Get Low is a beautiful regionalist film, and gives the viewer a glimpse into an era and time that was not so long ago.В  It begs one to question their personal relationships, and the wedges that might be dividing an individual, family, or community. We highly recommend this film for your next backyard-movie event. You won't be disappointed!
