104 minutes — PG, 35mm, Richard Linklater, United States, 2012
A small-town Texas mortician (Jack Black) strikes up a lifelong (though not long) friendship with a wealthy widow (Shirley MacLaine) in this based-on-a-true-story from director Linklater (School of Rock, Dazed and Confused). Jack Black’s “performance… is so weirdly sweet and restrained (even as he breaks into show-tunes) that it might be his best ever.” (Dear Cast and Crew)
