Indie Trailer Sunday: Hal Holbrook in That Evening Sun Trailer
Earlier this week I was introduced to a small genre of film that I didn't know existed - Southern Gothic. If you're unsure of what exactly that means, like I was at first, just check out this trailer and you'll completely understand. Russ from SlashFilm recently pointed out this trailer for That Evening Sun that stars Hal Holbrook, Ray McKinnon, and Mia Wasikowska (who plays Alice in Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland). It looks like Hal Holbrook can still deliver an oustanding performance. I was moved by his work in Into the Wild and it looks like this will be great thanks to him as well. Anyway, I've said enough, just watch this.

An aging Tennessee farmer named Abner Meecham (Hal Holbrook) returns to his homestead and must confront a family betrayal, the reappearance of an old enemy, and the potential loss of his beloved farm.
That Evening Sun is both written and directed by first-time Georgia-born filmmaker Scott Teems, of a few short films including A Death in the Woods previously. This film is based on William Gay's short story "I Hate to See That Evening Sun Go Down". Freestyle Releasing is bringing That Evening Sun to very limited theaters starting on November 13th this fall before expanding throughout November. Look for it locally!
