  • Inspired by the true story of Tennessee recluse Felix "Bush" Breazeale, who planned his funeral while he was still alive, director Aaron Schneider's dramatic period thriller stars Robert Duvall, Bill Murray, Sissy Spacek, and Lewis Black. Few folks have spoken with Felix Bush (Duvall) since he disappeared into the Tennessee woods 40 years ago, and the ones who have don't necessarily have the kindest things to say about him. Gruff, confrontational, and ill-tempered, Felix has been the source of many malicious rumors over the years. Some say he's a cold-hearted killer and his penchant for walking into town with a shotgun, a wild beard, and threadbare clothes doesn't exactly give the impression of a man who seeks to make friends. When Felix walks into Frank Quinn's (Murray) funeral parlor and announces his intentions to throw himself a massive party before he passes away, word quickly spreads through town and anticipation starts to run high. Before long the big day has finally arrived, and Felix surprises everyone by revealing exactly why he shunned society to lead a life of solitude in the deep woods.

  • Critic Reviews
    3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[W]atching Murray spar with Duvall is pure pleasure....[A] funny, touching and acutely observed film..."
    Rolling Stone

    "The picture is beautifully shot by DAvid Boyd....He captures the Kodachrome contrast of rugged gray trees against bright blue sky, and his interiors have a burnished worn-velvet glow."

    4.5 stars out of 5 -- "[A] funny, touching debut....A deft blend of drama, comedy, mystery and a touch of romance..."
    Box Office

    "[C]inematographer-turned-director Aaron Schneider has fashioned a measured fable, witty and deeply felt...'
    Los Angeles Times

    "Schneider establishes a tone as gentle and homespun as a bluegrass lullaby..."
    A.V. Club

    "[I]ts protagonist is vivid, enigmatic and unpredictable....Mr. Duvall is still able to carry a movie easily and gracefully."
    New York Times

    3 stars out of 4 -- "Duvall is authentic right down to the bone...Just plain enjoyable..."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    "Duvall makes Felix a gruffly soft-spoken eccentric with a lethal mystique."
    Entertainment Weekly

    3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[Duvall's] performance in this quiet, affecting drama is a veritable shoo-in for an Oscar nomination..."
    Washington Post

    3 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's Murray who make the greater impact, his droll deadpan and deft underplaying offering a neat, sly complement to Duvall and Spacek's more actorly flourishes."
    Total Film

    "Murray puts his usual deadpan spin on every line..."
