Some of those films have picked up distribution - including Get Low (Sony Pictures Classic), The Evening Sun (Dogwood Entertainment), and Creation (New Market Films).
Of those films, the one that seems like it could potentially get the most play is Get Low, which has a great award pedigree cast (Robert Duvall, Sissy Spacek, Bill Murray), but apparently all the potential excitement for a film that seems like it could be incredible is for nothing at this point.
But according to Kristopher Tapley at InContention, this film is off the 2009 radar. Which is totally disappointing.
The Evening Sun and Creation could show up at the Oscars, but I'm not holding my breathe. Wish Get Low was there though, maybe next year.
Get Low's Oscar Pedigree
- Director Aaron Schneider - 1 Oscar Win (Best Live Short Film)
- Actor Robert Duvall - 7 Oscar nominations, 1 Oscar win
- Actor Bill Murray - 1 Oscar nomination
- Actress Sissy Spacek - 6 Oscar nominations, 1 Oscar win
- Composer Jan A.P. Karcmarek - 1 Oscar win
- Production Designer Geoffrey Kirkland - 1 Oscar nomination
Sidenote: Great tagline on the poster -- "Every secret dies somewhere." It certainly get's you wondering if this film is about more than an old man planning his funeral, doesn't it.
