directed by Joseph Anthony
USA 1972

 

[Billy Bob Thornton’s character in Slingblade is] reminiscent of two similar types played by Robert Duvall— slow-witted Boo Radley in Robert Mulligan’s To Kill a Mockingbird (1962) and dirt farmer Jackson Fentry in Joseph Anthony’s Tomorrow (1972).

—Joe Baltake, The Sacramento Bee


Starring Robert Duvall in his breakthrough screen role, Tomorrow is a poignant tale based on a short story by William Faulkner, and scripted by Academy Award winner Horton Foote (To Kill a Mockingbird, Tender Mercies). Duvall is Jackson Fentry, a young man who leaves his father’s farm to work at a local sawmill. Fentry rescues a young pregnant woman, who has been abandoned by her husband and family, and the two fall in love. Shot in black and white to convey the feel of the Depression era, Tomorrow remains the finest screen translation of Faulkner’s vision of the South.

Comments:

Very strong image on this Home Vision DVD. Great contrast and shadow detail and some film grain showing through. I suspect there may have been a conversation or two about bumping this up to the Criterion label. A really nice film that is beautifully shot. It is great to see it given a fair shake on the digital format.  Audio is very exceptional. Illuminating 17:00 interview/discussion with Duval and Foote is included as an extra along with a 22 page booklet of liner notes by Sheila Benson. I can't find too much fault in this DVD at all.  out of
