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 $17 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!
This could not have happened at a better time as I was finding myself to be heading towards a really dark place where I was convinced that I was broken and that something was wrong with me as I didn’t experience the same feelings towards other individuals that my friends did.
There is a lot to recommend Scott Teems "That Evening Sun", and I'm happy I was able to catch a recent screening as a premier event of the Tallahassee Film Festival.
Kindly indulge my regional preference for literature and the performing arts, but you really can't beat the local color of the rural South.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.Day in and day out he drives an armored vehicle, transporting millions of other people's money with no escape in sight.The only glimmer of excitement is his flirtatious work crush Kelly Campbell who soon lures him into the scheme of a lifetime.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).
