That Evening Sun, with Hal Halbrook

Directed by Scott Teems, who also adapted William Gay‘s short story "I Hate to See That Evening Sun Go Down," That Evening Sun stars Hal Holbrook as Abner Meecham, an elderly Tennessee farmer who, after fleeing from his nursing home, returns to his homestead only to discover that his son (Walton Goggins) has leased the farm to a no-good neighbor (Ray McKinnon).

Reviews have been highly positive. In Variety, Joe Leydon calls That Evening Sun "an exceptionally fine example of regional indie filmmaking," while in the New York Times Stephen Holden praises Holbrook’s "fierce, contained performance."

If the 84-year-old Hal Holbrook is remembered by year-end film critics — and that seems quite likely, considering the notices he’s been getting and the fact that That Evening Sun has just opened — he’ll probably land a best actor Oscar nomination come next February. Who knows, he may even pull a Richard Farnsworth and land a Best Actor – Drama Golden Globe nod as well. In early 2008, Holbrook was nominated in the best supporting actor category for his work in Sean Penn‘s Into the Wild.

Also in the That Evening Sun cast: Barlow Jacobs, Mia Wasikowska, Carrie Preston, Barry Corbin, and Dixie Carter.
