Laid back movie with a surprising emotional impact
This is a great, great film. Robert Duvall richly deserved the Oscar he won for Best Actor, and Bruce Beresford’s direction is quirky but consistently entertaining.
The most wonderful aspect of this movie is how the screenwriter (Horton Foote) doesn’t let the characters engage in all the obvious, “Hollywood” histrionics that the plot would allow them to do. For example: when Mack (Duvall) finally meets his long-lost daughter late in the film, he doesn’t run to her and embrace her with tears staining his face while music swells beneath the scene, as a hack director would have him do. Instead, he looks at his shoes, makes small talk, and acts embarrassed. Why? Because, consistently throughout the film, he doesn’t believe he deserves the good things that come his way.
This is the tale of a man who, in the absolute pit of despair and hopelessness, is saved by the love of a good woman and the love of God. You need to see it.
Powerful, moving movie about redemption, restoration and hope.
While some may consider the movie a little slow at times, its overall message is a powerful one. A movie about redemption, restoration and hope. Robert Duvall’s portrayal of a man whose life is in need of repair is outstanding. Ranks with his character in “The Apostle”, a similar tale in many ways. In my opinion, the baptismal scene is one of the movie’s most moving moments. The bleak landscapes and the dust-blown scenes effectively echo the main character’s state of mind for part of the film. Mac Sledge is a great character brought to life by Duvall. As Sledge gradually gets his life together thanks to the developing relationships with a young widow and her son, the mood of the movie becomes a little more positive.
