Get Low – New Hollywood Movie About a Grand Funeral Bash – Video

imageI was emailed a link to a trailer for a new Hollywood movie scheduled to launch this summer. When reading the title I had a hard time linking “Get Low” to the funeral industry, outside of something that would take place at a cemetery (someone being buried). After watching the trailer it appears I am dead wrong (LOL). The movie actually looks very good.

I downloaded the press kit to get a better handle on the idea and story of the movie. Here is an excerpt about the production:

It is an American folktale that has been passed down by storytellers for decades, spreading across distance and time to take on the proportions of a larger-than-life legend: that of the eccentric hermit known as Felix ?Bush,? who temporarily came out of hiding to throw a grand funeral bash for himself — while he was still very much alive and kicking. Now, the story has taken on another incarnation: inspiring a motion picture that peers behind the folklore to unfold the colorful drama of a man?s last-ditch quest for redemption.

For years, townsfolk have been terrified of the backwoods recluse known as Felix Bush (Robert Duvall). People say he?s done all manner of unspeakable things — that he?s killed in cold blood; that he?s in league with the Devil; that he has strange powers — and they avoid him like the plague. Then, one day, Felix rides to town with a shotgun and a wad of cash, saying he wants to buy a funeral. It?s not your usual funeral for the dead Felix wants. On the contrary, he wants a ?living funeral,? in which anyone who ever had heard a story about him will come to tell it, while he takes it all in.
