"Get Low" movie

I had won tickets to see the movie "Get Low" so Mick & I shuffled off to the Palace Centro cinemas in Fortitude Valley on Sunday arvo. I hadn't been to this cinema before & hadn't really gone to this part of The Valley either. I felt like a total slob. I went in my usual movie going attire. Jeans, Best n Less jumper & connies shoes. Hair in pig-tail with bandana. Just about EVERYBODY else at the movies was all gussied up like they were going to a cocktail party. Seriously. Almost everybody in the cinema was over 50 & instead of popcorn & coke they had bottles of chardy. It was funny when about 1/2 way through the film some bloke up the back must have had a bit too much & started snoring!
Anyway, the film was wonderful. I swear Bill Murray just gets better & better with each film. Robert Duvall was incredible & if he isn't nominated for an Oscar for this part I'll be surprised. It took me about 30 minutes to remember where I knew the lead younger actor from. He was Caleb on the show "American Gothic".
It was set in the 1930s/40s in the south and the costuming was amazing. Even Mick was sighing over the jackets & suits. It is a simple story & a nice film that is beautifully filmed. I wish I would have remembered to take my hankie as being the super sensitive gal I am I lost it a bit toward the end.
Vicki rating 8/10.
