Sony Pictures Home Entertainment is in the process of finalizing Get Low, bringing the drama to DVD and Blu-Ray Disc in February.
Academy Award® winner Robert Duvall(1984, Best Actor, Tender Mercies) is Felix Bush, the “Hermit of Caleb County,” a man so haunted by his secrets that he has lived in quiet desolation in the Tennessee backwoods for over 40 years. Realizing that he is near his own mortality, Bush decides to have a “living funeral party,” inviting people to tell their stories about him. Enlisting the help of Frank Quinn(Golden Globe® winner Bill Murray, 2004, Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy, Lost in Translation) and Buddy Robinson(Lucas Black, Legion), Bush goes through a process of self-discovery, allowing him to deal with his past secrets, including ones involving old flame(and new widow) Mattie(Academy Award®winner Sissy Spacek, 1980, Best Actress, Coal Miner’s Daughter).
The DVD version, arriving in anamorphic widescreen with Dolby Digital 5.1 audio, will also include a Commentary Track with Robert Duvall, Sissy Spacek, Director Aaron Schneider and Producer Dean Zanuck. Also included are the Featurettes ”The Deep South: Buried Secrets” and ”Getting Low: Getting Into Character”. A Cast & Crew Q&A is also included on the disc, as well as A Screenwriter’s Point of View and clips On the Red Carpet.
On the Blu-Ray version you will find a 1080p high definition transfer with DTS 5.1 HD Master Audio, along with the same bonus materials as the DVD version.
“Get Low” has been scheduled for release on February 22 for $28.95 on DVD and $38.95 on Blu-Ray Disc.
