dir. Richard Linklater / USA 2011 / 104’

Cast

Jack Black, Shirley MacLaine, Matthew McConaughey

Film description

Bernie enjoys a sweet reputation; he bakes cookies, helps in selecting a casket, offers a hug when appropriate, and sings gospel at the funeral. In short, a mortician like no other. Right after Bernie’s arrival in a small Texas town, all the widows take a strong liking to him, inviting him to tea, and transferring the fortunes of their dearly departed. If he were a film character, Bernie would probably exploit that.

But he’s not, at least not exactly. Linklater based this eccentric comedy on the true story of a man currently doing time in a Texas prison. Despite a despicable crime, all the locals rallied to his defense. Why? What is Bernie’s discreet charm all about?
