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. Thanks to Rialto Distribution, we had 5 double-passes for Get Low to give away to our readers. Now that we’ve planned our own funerals, it’s time to give away the tickets while there is life left in us yet!
The film is written by Chris Provenzano and C. Gaby Mitchell, and directed by Aaron Schneider. It also stars Sissy Spacek, Bill Murray, Lucas Black, Gerald McRaney, Bill Cobbs, Andrea Powell, Rebecca Grant, and Scott Cooper. Once again Robert Duvall proves why he is one of America’s most beloved actors. He only gets better with age. This is among his best performances and the supporting cast brings the story to life in a meaningful and heartfelt way.
To win this great prize, all you had to do was name one of the actors in the film Get Low. The answer was so easy that we gave it to you, and we would have accepted just about anybody including Sissy Spacek, Bill Murray, Lucas Black, Gerald McRaney, Bill Cobbs, Andrea Powell, Rebecca Grant, and Scott Cooper. Of course, the majority of you answered “Bill Murray”. Why wouldn’t you? The winners, drawn randomly out of our 21st equivalent of a hat, are:
- Fiona Raw
- Helga Grenkowitz
- Paul Stechly
- Minh Ai Nguyen
- Lesley Fisher
