over the weekend we invited some friends over for dinner and went to a movie. we really wanted to see this film because it was filmed here in knoxville (and blount county) and was produced locally by dogwood entertainment.
that evening sun, starring hal holbrook (who at age 83, just starred in his first feature length film in his career.) i hear there is some oscar buzz, and he deserves it. what an awesome movie!!
despite the heavy nature of the story line, there is a good deal of humor, and nipper, the dog, is worth the price of admission. incidently, the daughter in the film is from australia and for the life of me i'd swear she could be from the backwoods of rockford, tennessee. she was amazing (and is soon to be in alice in wonderland)!
out of the 16 film festivals they took the movie to, it won like 14 of them. i think this is going to be the indy film to see this year! if you have an art house movie theater in your town/city, ask for it. they're all about audience buzz!!
