Excellent movie! First rate actors and great acting. Complex story about love, loss, secrets and forgiveness. Set in the deep south, early in the 20th century. (I can't remember if the year was mentioned). I loved the old patchwork quilts, the old town, the vintage cars, costumes, Sissy Spacek's hats. Based on a true story. I enjoy watching the commentary and interviews at the end of a film. Definitely recommend this movie!

Excellent. This is my 2nd viewing in past years. Bill Murray and Robert Duvall, Lucas Black perfect in their roles. Some interesting comments in bonus features. Bill Cobbs as a reverend great too.~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Excellent film with a superb cast. While it has humorous moments, there is a serious narrative as well. Don't miss this one.

Sweet, thoughtful and superbly acted. For a simple story it had plenty of twists to hold my interest. I agree this should have received way more interest when it was released.

Excellent film, should have gotten much more attention. Duvall is superb in his role, as are the other big and small names in this movie. I may have to buy it for my own shelves!

This was funny and sad, angry and honest. A great thinking film for adults to promote conversation. The cast is amazing. And watch the special features. The interaction between Sissy, Bill and Bobby in an on stage preview is wonderful fun.

My copy of the DVD was scratched up, making continuous viewing a challenge. Despite this, the film is touching while having some funny moments at times (Billy Murray is in it). The strong cast by mostly veteran actors helps to make this film, one with no sex and little violence, a very engaging one.

The greatness of this film was to see two of the finest actors of the 70’s ust perform like they can. The other greatness is that this film is based on a true life story of a man who took 40 years to come clean and ask forgiveness for sins that he punished himself by withdrawing from society by living the life of Job. Bill Murray played the role of a mild huckster who was just trying to keep his funeral business afloat.

This film is a little slow moving, yet was interesting nevertheless. The cursing was not excessive & there were no sex scenes. Of note was the honesty of the funeral staff in spite of temptation, & Felix's conviction of his own guilt & how important it was for him to be forgiven.

Coarse Language: There's quite a bit of coarse language, but no violence or sexual situations. Definitely suitable for teens if the language isn't an issue. Don't recall any "f" bombs dropped. The worst I remember is son of a b____.
