Nobody's Fool

7 years, 7 months ago at Jun 16 19:10
I’m all for any excuse to sit back and watch Paul Newman act. Nobody’s Fool is a late-period masterpiece of a performance from Newman. The movie surrounding it isn’t too shabby either, but the heart of the matter is that Nobody’s Fool operates best as a character portrait of a damaged man trying to make good. Or not so much “make good,” as he has change and the opportunity for growth a... read more

Description: Paul Newman earned an Oscar nomination (and won citations from the New York Film Critics Circle and the Berlin International Film Festival) for his performance in this well-drawn comedy-drama. Sully (Newman) is a 60-year-old man who emotionally seems to have never quite emerged from adolescence; scraping by on part-time work in construction, Sully has built a life around avoiding responsibility. He hasn't spoken with his ex-wife (Elizabeth Wilson) in years, he lives in a rooming house owned by his eighth-grade teacher Mrs. Beryl (Jessica Tandy), his best friend is a mildly retarded handyman, Rub (Pruitt Taylor Vince), and he has ...

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- November 2018 (29 movies items)

" Starz- 1hr. 50min. First Viewing Robert Benton expertly tells a small, nuanced story of missed opportunities and regrets, how quickly a life can get away from you. He also illustrates one of the most realistic and natural visions of small town life in cinematic history. He's aided by a terrific cast, lead by, most importantly, Paul Newman in one of his finest performances. The film would, probably, work with another actor in the role, but it would be hard to fathom someone imbuing the whole fil"

35 From 94: My Favorite Films From 1994 (35 movies items)

" Living a life with just enough to get by, "Sully" Sullivan seems okay with just that despite the years piling on. When his estranged son comes to town with his own son in tow, "Sully" starts to feel the twinges of patriarchal charge towards the grandson he never knew had. Moving through the typical "atypical" happenings of his small town, Sully finds the pieces of his life starting stitch together in a way in which he must decide to either just keep crustily cruisin' by, or, to do that one thi"
