Plot: In small-town Texas, the local mortician strikes up a friendship with a wealthy widow.
Review: The true story of Bernie Tiede, a charismatic Texan and devoted Christian who decided to take advantage of a millionaire widow. It’s intriguing to see how a person that commits a terrible crime can be so loved and cherished by an entire community. Self-taught director Richard Linklater, has a strong return with a movie that doesn’t discard a smart and morbid humor merged with the seriousness of a brutal crime. It also makes us to have a good thought about how impartiality in a crime judgment is so fundamental. Good story!Relevant awards: -
