That Evening Sun

Last night I saw the movie THAT EVENING SUN starring Hal Holbrook, and enjoyed it.

THAT EVENING SUN is excellent storytelling with an interesting, multi-dimensional character played by Hal Holbrook, who gives an exceptional performance. The entire cast is good, and it is always a pleasure watching Barry Corbin act. To learn more about the film, visit http://thateveningsun.com/.
