Get Low – New Hollywood Movie About a Grand Funeral Bash – Video
I 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.
Click below to watch the trailer.
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.
