Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Aug 22nd at 5:15 pm for Get Low at the Landmark E Street Cinema . Look for Laine wearing a denim skirt in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
When much-feared hermit Felix Bush (Robert Duvall) comes to town with a wad of cash and announces his intention to preside over his own funeral, fast-talking mortician Frank Quinn (Bill Murray) smells a big payday in the air. Frank sends his young apprentice, Buddy, to charm Felix and win his business. As the day of the unusual funeral approaches, Buddy uncovers a long-held secret involving Felix, a local widow (Sissy Spacek) and an Illinois preacher.
