‘Get Low’ takes it slow

SPC masterminds gradual rollout

“Get Low” drew a full house at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ screening, or, “living room,” as it was referred to at Tuesday night’s premiere.

Making “Get Low” has been therapeutic for helmer Aaron Schneider: “I lost my high-school sweetheart. So having some life experience with (the story), I know what that feels like.”

Schneider’s attachment helped getting at least one of the star thesps on board. “Aaron came to me years ago,” Sissy Spacek said, “and just never let up in trying to get it made.”

Sony Pictures Classics’ Michael Barker masterminded the film’s slow release, which has put it on the fest circuit since 2009. “The more you screen it, the more people go out and talk about it,” he said.

Co-star Robert Duvall found himself surrounded by so many women at the preem that he could barely finish a drink. “I’ve been doin’ a lot of these lately because I gotta go down to Texas to do a movie with Lucas Black. A golf thing.” Duvall, isn’t much of a golfer but it doesn’t matter. “I’m just playing a golf pro.”
