Robert Duvall's feisty hermit decides to fake his own funeral

Get Low review

It’s something we’ve all pondered: who will show up for our funeral? Robert Duvall gets to find out in this wry dramedy.

The veteran star plays Felix Bush, a cantankerous, be-whiskered hermit who, with the help of an enterprising funeral-home director (a superbly subtle Bill Murray), decides to throw his own going-away-forever party while he’s still breathing, just to see who shows up and what they have to say about him.

Ironically, it’s the final act that lets down Aaron Schneider’s debut, but it remains a sad, funny character study painted in delightfully dusty earth tones.
