Get Low

Tammy and I saw this movie the other night and it was excellent.  Its a story of guilt and shame and the need for forgiveness and redemption.  Duvall plays Felix Woods a man who has punished himself by isolating himself from the world for 43 years.  He tries to pay for the guilt he feels but does not find forgiveness.  In one memorable seen with the local pastor he is asked if he has been forgiven and he replies that he has paid and the pastor tells him he cannot pay for forgiveness it is free but must be asked for from Jesus.  Later in the movie Felix says, "They keep talking about forgiveness. "Ask Jesus for forgiveness." I never did nothing to him." But at the end he does confess and ask.... pretty powerful stuff
