Few folks have spoken with Felix Bush (Duvall) since he disappeared into the Tennessee woods 40 years ago, and the ones who have don't necessarily have the kindest things to say about him. Gruff, confrontational, and ill-tempered, Felix has been the source of many malicious rumors over the years. Some say he's a cold-hearted killer and his penchant for walking into town with a shotgun, a wild beard, and threadbare clothes doesn't exactly give the impression of a man who seeks to make friends.

3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[W]atching Murray spar with Duvall is pure pleasure....[A] funny, touching and acutely observed film..." - 08/05/2010 Rolling Stone


"The picture is beautifully shot by DAvid Boyd....He captures the Kodachrome contrast of rugged gray trees against bright blue sky, and his interiors have a burnished worn-velvet glow." - 07/23/2010 Movieline


4.5 stars out of 5 -- "[A] funny, touching debut....A deft blend of drama, comedy, mystery and a touch of romance..." - 01/27/2010 Box Office
