Synopsis

A big-hearted Southern yarn, Get Low is a movie spun out of equal parts folk tale, fable and real-life legend about the mysterious, 1930s Tennessee hermit who famously threw his own rollicking funeral party . . . while he was still alive. Academy Award® winner Robert Duvall, Golden Globe winner Bill Murray, Academy Award® winner Sissy Spacek and Lucas Black form an ensemble of unforgettable characters who bring to life the surprising last act of Felix Bush. A life-long “wild man” and misfit, Felix has been nearly swallowed up by the power of his town’s sinister myths about him – until he finds the courage on his own “funeral day” to make a shocking confession about why he turned away from society. The result is a comic, poignant, at times haunting tale about the snowballing nature of secrets, stories and heartbreak – and the redemption of telling the truth.
