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 Lucas 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.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Sweet and gentle and occasionally makes you crave a catnap."
‑ Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald
"Eccentric and ultimately touching."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"This is a film about a man who doesn't speak to the world for 40 years, and once it comes time, the movie won't let him, or itself, shut up."
‑ Will Leitch, Deadspin
"The mighty Robert Duvall delivers an astounding turn as a man whose soul is burdened by the weight of regret in Get Low."
‑ Matthew Pejkovic, Matt's Movie Reviews
"Get Low is a handmade kind of film. Its ambitions are modest, but fully attained. I rarely use the words ''go see it'', but I hope a lot of people do."
‑ Paul Byrnes, Sydney Morning Herald
"That the finale ends up being trite is a shame, but the long, gentle jaunt to arrive there is a pleasurable one."
‑ David Jenkins, Time Out
"It contains yet another pitch-perfect performance by Robert Duvall, who has given more great performances over the age of 60 than any actor, probably ever."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"Highly unusual drama - with black comedy elements - which allows Duvall to showcase his refined skills."
‑ Ben McEachen, Empire Magazine Australasia
"Basically, it's Hollywood slush dressed up as American Gothic."
‑ Mark Demetrius, FILMINK (Australia)
"As if it even needs to be said, Robert Duvall really is great as Felix Bush; he reveals himself so slowly and steadily, as to unveil facets of his character and personality only when he sees fit. It's a performance that deserves a better screenplay."
‑ Simon Miraudo, Quickflix
"The creaky foreshadowing is a big problem, and the movie runs in place for most of its second half, though Duvall manages to pull it back on track with his climactic soliloquy, which sobers and silences the carnivalesque funeral party."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"It affords Duvall a terrific role, harking back to his screen debut as one of literature's great loners, Boo Radley."
‑ Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
"The ponderous route of the film is livened up by the presence of the deadpan Bill Murray"
‑ Dan Gear, Moviedex
"It's Duvall's film, and he brings a gravity and poetry to Bush that sets him apart from the script's more prosaic moments."
‑ Clem Bastow, The Vine
"Duvall shines in engaging tale of guilt and redemption"
‑ Don Groves,
