JoBlo Review: Get Low


Get Low is a film I caught at the Toronto International Film Festival in the fall, that’s now playing at Sundance. I remember attending the press screening, and hearing a buyer from Sony Pictures Classics talk to a local exhibitor about how he’ll know within the first twenty minutes if this is a film worth picking up, and if he’s not around after that- this is a big pass.

Suffice to say; when the credits rolled he was still there, and a few days later it was announced that Sony had indeed picked up the theatrical rights to the film, which easily features Robert Duvall’s best performance since The Apostle. I was actually surprised this film didn’t get a huge awards campaign a few months ago, but I’m sure bringing it to Sundance means they’re planning on doing the Oscar push this year instead.

The story is too old to be commented.
