That Evening Sun

Hal Holbrook delivers one of those "performance of a lifetime" things in this skillfully written Southern drama, a cross between William Faulkner and Erskine Caldwell. Holbrook plays Abner, an aged Tennessee farmer forced into a nursing home by his uncaring son. Unbroken and unbowed, our protagonist escapes from the facility and returns to his beloved farm--which has now been leased out to his old, white-trash rival (Ray McKinnon, "Deadwood"). Abner moves into an old tenant shack on the property and vows not to leave until the farm is returned to him. This sets up a savage battle of wills between the two stubborn, self-righteous enemies. 109 minutes PG-13.
