Get Low, the powerful, witty and critically acclaimed drama inspired by a remarkable true story, arrives on DVD on 16th May 2011, courtesy of Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Academy Award® winner Robert Duvall (Best Actor, Tender Mercies, 1983) stars as Felix Bush, an infamous hermit who is intent on throwing his own funeral party while he's still alive. Directed by Academy Award® winner Aaron Schneider (Best Live Action Short Film, Two Soldiers, 2003), the film boasts an all-star cast that includes Academy Award® winner Sissy Spacek (Best Actress, Coal Miner's Daughter, 1980), Academy Award® nominee Bill Murray (Best Actor, Lost in Translation, 2003) and Lucas Black (Legion).

Get Low was written by Chris Provenzano (TV's Mad Men) and C. Gaby Mitchell (Blood Diamond) and produced by Dean Zanuck, David Gundlach and Mitchell. Executive producers include David B. Ginsberg, Harrison Zanuck, Richard D. Zanuck, Joseph Rappa, Scott Fischer and Alain Midzic.

The DVD contains all-new special features that include a commentary with Robert Duvall, Sissy Spacek, Director Aaron Schneider & Producer Dean Zanuck as well as four behind-the-scenes featurettes and a cast & crew Q&A.

For years, townsfolk have been terrified of the backwoods recluse known as Felix Bush (Duvall). People say he's done all sorts of unspeakable things -- that he's killed in cold blood; that he's in league with the devil; that he has strange powers -- and they avoid him like the plague. Then one day, Felix rides to town with a shotgun and a wad of cash, saying he wants to buy a funeral. It's not your usual funeral for the dead that Felix wants. On the contrary, he wants a living funeral, in which anyone who ever has had a story about him will come to tell it, while he takes it all in.

Sensing an opportunity for a big payday, fast-talking funeral home owner Frank Quinn (Murray) enlists his gentlemanly young apprentice, Buddy Robinson (Black), to win Felix's business. Buddy is no stranger to Felix's dark reputation, but what he discovers is that behind Felix's surreal plan lies a very real and long-held secret. As the funeral approaches, the mystery - involving the widow Mattie Darrow (Spacek), the only person in town who ever got close to Felix, and an Illinois preacher Charlie Jackson (Cobbs), who refuses to speak at his former friend's funeral - only deepens. But when the big day comes, Felix is in no mood to listen to other people spinning made-up anecdotes about him. This time, he's the one who is going to do the telling about why he has been hiding out in the woods.
