Robert Duvall Thinks It’s Time to ‘Get Low’

posted by Kris Rasmussen
Jeff Bridges and Robert Duvall in Crazy Heart

If there is one movie I am anxiously waiting to come my cineplex, it’s Robert Duvall’s latest “Get Low.” He’s been on a great cinematic run this last year between his involvement in “The Road” and “Crazy Heart” and his latest, though it is currently in limited release, is getting great reviews. I wasn’t aware of the film until I heard Duvall’s articulate, insightful interview over at NPR the other day. In that interview he discusses the spiritual themes surrounding this quirky story about a recluse, Felix Bush, who wants to throw an elaborate funeral – while he is still alive.What I respect most about this interview – other than it doesn’t give away all of the secrets of “Get Low” as often happens these days in interviews- is that Duvall discusses his deep desire to create Christian characters that don’t condescend to the movie audience and discusses his choices in “The Apostle” and “Tender Mercies” to create less predictable stories of faith.He also discusses a connection between this movie and the great playwright Horton Foote – who wrote the screenplay that featured Duvall’s film debut in “To Kill A MockingBIrd” -that gave me goosebumps when I heard it.If I still haven’t gotten your interest yet, here’s the trailer that I am sure will get you just as excited as I am to see this heartwarming, inspiring film.
