by Robert Duvall as an alcoholic ex-country singer star, who rediscovers himself by finding a family.
Ordinarily this kind of upbeat view could be treacly, or seem like a Hollywood simplification. But
here it's simultaneously rich and sparse, and even in a world where life is ultimately good, there are still
tragedies big and small, broken hearts and terrible losses. This is that rare `feel good' film that
earns the right.
The supporting work by Tess Harper and Betty Buckley is worth mentioning as well, as is Bruce Beresford's
understated but always effective and evocative direction.
But ultimately it's Foote's screenplay, set in a world where predictability and cliche are the usual, that
manages to pull off the almost impossible and create something unique, tender, and new.
It is a gentle understated love story. Robert Duvall won a well deserved Acadamey Award for his performance as Mac Sledge, a self destructive alcoholic and country singer who finds a new meaning to life through the love of a good woman, Rosa Lee played with feeling by Tess Harper.
As with all good love stories there are a few complications which makes the plot more interesting.
It made me laugh and cry. Well worth the watch.
This is a wonderful, beautiful story. Duvall excels at playing honest, straightforward characters that are completely lacking in artifice and is convincing as the silent, pained has-been. His compelling performance earned Best Actor Oscar in 1984. This was Tess Harper's first movie but she acts like a pro; she effortlessly portrays the simple, hardworking woman who is grateful for the tender mercies, or blessings, in her life. The two stars make you feel like you've really been to rural Texas and gotten to know and care about the folks there. The movie is quite similar in mood to "The Last Picture Show," with characters that say what they mean and know who they are.
This is a quiet, touching, and utterly engaging movie about interesting people. Heartily recommended.
Take the time to relax with this film.
