Covington Walk of Stars #16- Get Low


get-low-poster

Grossing over nine million dollars, The Walk of Stars welcomes the 16th stop on our unique tour, ‘Get Low’! Starring Robert Duvall, Sissy Spacek, Bill Murray and more, this tale is in part fable, tall-tale, and legend about a man from Tennessee in the 1930s.  Many legends come and go, but it is the especially intriguing ones that seem to linger on and inspire awe wherever they are told, and the 16th stop on the Walk of Stars is no different.

‘Get Low’ came to Hollywood in 2009 through director Aaron Schneider known for Supernatural, Simon Birch. His incredible cast known for Carrie, An American Haunting, Gone in 60 seconds, Get Smart, Charlie’s Angels and more. Get Low is about a hermit in Tennessee in the 1930s named Felix Bush portrayed by Robert Duvall. Felix hears about a fellow hermits’ death and begins to hear the town folk relay stories about the deceased. Felix, with no regard for anyone or interest in anything but his own well-being decides to enlist the help of the funeral director Frank played by Bill Murray.

Felix aims to throw his own funeral so he can get his past out there for people to hear, relay, and be in awe. But, with how he’s acted in the past, he soon finds himself concerned that no one will show up to the funeral, and as such he won’t be able to hear what they would say about him.

Get Low has the perfect thought provoking tag line, “Every secret dies somewhere.” Felix throughout the film wonders if his secrets and his past will ever be told and remembered. The film makes you wonder if you are leaving a little bit of you behind after you’re gone!

Covington Georgia, the proud home of the Hollywood of the South welcomes Get Low to its tour and we hope you enjoy it just as much as we did! Get Low—the 16th Stop on the Walk of Stars!
