TIME Critic Richard Corliss' 1983 review of TENDER MERCIES

Corliss will present Robert Duvall with this year’s Compass Rose Acting Award.

We are beyond excited to have Richard Corliss (Time Magazine) will present legendary actor Robert Duvall with this year’s Compass Rose Acting Award, an event which will feature an in-depth interview and clips from Duvall’s inimitable career. Back in March 1983, Corliss heralded Tender Mercies, the film which won Duvall the Academy Award for Best Actor, as, “the best American movie of the new year.” To read the full original review, go HERE.

Don’t forget to check out Robert Duvall in GET LOW at the Festival, in what is sure to be one of the most talked-about performances of the year.
