It's my understanding that "Get Low" does not have a theatrical distributor yet.
Yet being the key word.
Because someone is going to pick this film up, and when they do, they're going to make a bucket of money for their troubles. Depending on when and how they release the film, it could easily be an Oscar-nomination stealth missle for the great Robert Duvall. That's not to say this one of those one-man-show Oscar-bid-for-an-old-guy movies. Aaron Schneider, working from a warm and simple script by C. Gaby Mitchell and Chris Provenzano, has crafted a really lovely movie, and the entire ensemble does great work.
So come on... what are you distributors waiting for?
Robert Duvall stars as Felix Bush, a hermit who has been known as a nearly-mythological figure of fear for the residents of his local town and county for almost 40 years. They never name the year specifically, but it's got to be set in the '20s or '30s. The real Felix Bush whose story inspired the film threw his own funeral so he could be there in 1938. Times are tough, obviously, and Frank Quinn's funeral home is going down in flames, bankruptcy looming. In walks Felix, a wad of "hermit money" in his fist, demanding something unusual. He wants to throw a funeral party. And he wants to hear the stories everyone tells about him. All of them.
