      Audience Reviews for The Truth About Tully

      • Jan 13, 2011

        A quiet film, about a quiet man and his two sons, living on a farm in Nebraska. Tully (Anson Mount), is the elder son, and a twenty-something Lothario who believes himself irresistible to women. His younger brother, Earl (Glenn Fitzgerald), works hard and plays clean. A straight-arrow neighboring girl, Ella (Julianne Nicholson), is friends with Earl and becomes entangled with Tully. The father, also named Tully (Bob Burrus) just goes about his business, quietly and efficiently, without humor, until he gets notice that his farm is being foreclosed. It is in this scenario, that lies that have been told for years and secrets left unspoken begin to come to light. The scenery evokes the prairie life, and the characters are people it becomes easy to sympathize with. The pleasures of hard work and simple recreations enhance the filmâ(TM)s easy pace. Not a lot happens, but what does happen is significant. This was a good story about good people making hard choices.
