Consensus: Subtle to a fault, this perfectly cast ensemble drama is lifted by typically sharp performances from Robert Duvall and Bill Murray.

Sweet and gentle and occasionally makes you crave a catnap.

Quiet character study is stellar but won't appeal to kids.

That the finale ends up being trite is a shame, but the long, gentle jaunt to arrive there is a pleasurable one.

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.

It affords Duvall a terrific role, harking back to his screen debut as one of literature's great loners, Boo Radley.

Highly unusual drama - with black comedy elements - which allows Duvall to showcase his refined skills.

Great little movie. Compelling. Entertaining. What you should expect when a cast of experienced, classy actors get together to play out an interesting story.… More
'Get Low'. A kooky old yarn with doses of Bill Murray at his oddball best and a great leading performance by Robert Duvall.
