Tender Mercies (1983)

Oh, in case I forget to get back to it, as I frequently intend but often don’t, here’s a film that deserves more than the hit-and-run.

Tender Mercies
Robert Duvall, Tess Harper

Nominated for five Oscars and won two. Terrific movie with a great performance by Duvall, an actor I never tire of. It’s quiet and gentle, and the kind of movie I wish Hollywood cranked out more often. You won’t find much in the way of expository dialogue here; in fact, you don’t get answers to all kinds of questions that pop into your mind. But that’s what I love about this movie. Reid totally loves this film, calling it possibly a top ten, and while I won’t go that far, I can agree that this is a Great Film.

9/10
