Do Yourself a Favor: Check out This Movie
'That Evening Sun,' one of the year's hidden gems, releases to DVD
So I checked it out -- and suffice it to say it's one of 2010's hidden gems, certainly one of the best indie films I've seen this year. Holbrook is terrific as an old man who flees the confined life of a nursing home and tries to recover his old farmhouse -- only to learn it's already been sold. Bad blood and feuding ensues, but so do grace and redemption. It all adds up to a winner.
I had an interesting conversation with Teems about the film, about working with Holbrook, and about what makes for a "Christian" movie (and just as importantly, what doesn't). Anyway, good stuff.
Here's the trailer:
