Vowing not to die in a nursing home, Abner Meecham (Hal Holbrook) leaves the facility and returns to his Tennessee farm. There, an unpleasant surprise awaits him: Abner's son has leased the property to ne'er-do-well Lonzo Choat (Ray McKinnon) and his boorish family. Abner suspects that the Choats will not be able to afford the farm, and he moves into a shack to await their departure. Tensions escalate between Abner and Lonzo, each determined not to yield.

    This is a great movie full of pathos and the inherit sadness of aging and the human condition. I could not recommend it more.

    Absolutely depressing! Husband & I, both "senior citizens," left theatre in a cloud of despondency. Yikes, what a miserable way to spend a Friday evening. Albeit that Hal Holbrook is an accomplished actor & he played the character beautifully, we greatly regretted squirming through 2 hours of this film.
