That Evening Sun
First screened in June 2015
Director: Scott Teems. Cast: Hal Holbrook, Ray McKinnon, Walton Goggins, Mia Wasikowska, Carrie Preston, Barry Corbin, Dixie Carter, Anthony Reynolds, Barlow Jacobs. Screenplay: Scott Teems (based on the short story "I Hate to See That Evening Sun Go Down" by William Gay).

Twitter Capsule: Festival hit in places you might guess. Holbrook a strong center, but cast and story are pretty solid overall.

VOR:   Stories about aging characters shouldn't feel so rare. This one does, partly because it has some edges to go with its nostalgic aspects.
