Hal Holbrook as the title character, Abner Meecham, is brilliant with his tenacious attitude, and wizened expressions.He may be old, but he's still capable, resourceful, and completely self-absorbed.It left me captivated to a point of going back to do research on the real story. There were a few funny moments and in some moments, I even felt sorry for the main character. I wanted to see pictures of these people in person. After doing research on the real story, I found the movie to be very balanced in that it tried to find a humorous way to tell the story. Along with a group of half-brained criminals led by Steve Chambers and an absurdly faulted heist plan, David manages the impossible and makes off with million in cash..problem is he foolishly hands the money over to this wild group of double crossers and has been set up to take the fall.With the bandits blowing the millions on lavish and ridiculous luxuries, they leave behind a glaring trail of evidence.Ironically, I found myself reading about this while lying in bed at night and I can happily say it was one of the best and my earliest awesome experiences that I had ever had in bed!
However, unlike many other couples, they identify as homoromantic asexuals, or individuals who are romantically attracted to the same gender but not sexually attracted to any gender.This melancholy narrative is driven by simmering grudges,ill-gotten gains, and combustible relationships.It's as though William Faulker and Flannery O' Connor collaborated on Teem's script with its southern Gothic allusions and ironic events.Dream sequences and memories allow us to see his softer side as he relives tender moments with his late wife (played by the bewitching Dixie Carter, his real-life wife).He receives little support from his son, a busy attorney well-played by Walton Goggins.
