Aaron Schneider's Get Low premiered to rave reviews at last year's Toronto Film Festival, and Yahoo has finally given us a first look at the film. Robert Duvall, who is certainly an early Oscar favorite, stars as a 1930s Tennessee hermit who comes up with the outlandish idea of throwing himself a funeral party while he is still alive. Bill Murray will co-star as the owner of the funeral parlor that Duvall's character contacts; both Sissy Spacek and Lucas Black will have key supporting roles as well.

Get Low will be released by Sony Pictures Classics on July 30th. It seems like an odd release date for a supposed Oscar contender, but the early buzz is too deafening to ignore.
