2009 M Suitable for mature audiences 16 years and over.

Oscar winners Robert Duvall and Sissy Spacek team up to tell the true story of irascible Felix Bush, a backwoods Tennessee loner who planned his funeral in 1938 while he was still around to attend -- and enjoy -- the proceedings. Director Aaron Schneider's deft blend of dark humor and poignancy also stars Bill Murray as Frank Quinn, the huckster owner of a failing funeral home, and Lucas Black as his dubious assistant.

Great movie, true story, and good acting by the main characters. Refreshingly refined and well worth watching. Amusing but not black comedy. We loved it.

I loved this. The more I watched, the more it grew on me. I didn't think black comedy described it at all, I thought it was rather sweet, without being mawkish or sickly. Quietly amusing in parts.

This film definitely isn't your "usual Hollywood" one; it is quite refined and quiet, but touches a sensitive topic, certainly not a black one. Actin is excellent.
