Sony Pictures Classics, the arthouse/indie part of the Japanese studio giant, has released a rather intriguing new trailer for a small movie called Get Low.

The film, which is the début feature from former cinematographer Aaron Schneider, stars Robert Duvall and Bill Murray. If those two aren’t enough to get you interested then there’s the story…

Duvall plays Felix Bush, a true life, 1930s, mysterious old hermit from Tennessee who decided to hold a funeral party for himself while he’s still alive to enjoy it. Thing is though Felix is hiding a dark past, one that forced him to shun the world in the first place, and as friends and family gather to mark his “passing” that’s about to come out…

The movie generated great festival buzz at Toronto last year, prompting SPC to pick it up for distribution. Scheduled to hit screens Stateside on July 30th it may only see a limited release on this side of the pond, but it should definitely be worth watching out for.
