Fond of Fonda

Excellent tale about a man who gets involved with 2 men intent on getting their hands on a stash of stolen loot from an armored car robbery. Unique story with an actor I haven't seen since he hit middle age. Peter Fonda still has the same soulful eyes he had when I first saw him in "Wild Angels" back in the mid-60's. His acting has improved considerably over the years; I thought his old underground films were somewhat amateurish back then. This was a fine movie which reminded me a little of his western "The Hired Hand" from some 20 years ago. Well worth watching.

powerful story of family reclamation

Surely one of the best human dramas of the last few years, Peter Fonda is great as Ulee Jackson, a deeply wounded but incredibly strong man who by sheer strength of will reaches out to drag back together a shattered family. His performance is a masterpiece of understatement; we can almost physically sense the roiling depths of anger and resentment that lie below his cold, almost imperturbable exterior. The crime subplot never takes precedence over the gripping family drama that is the movie's core. It is wonderful to see the various characters gradually becoming re-integrated into a functioning family; i.e. the daughter's appearing late at night in the work area to help Ulee, whose restrictions up to then she has mightily resented, with his backbreaking work.

Few have commented on the double entendre of the movie's title. Ulee's "Gold" is, on its surface, the honey he works to produce. It is clear, at the film's conclusion, that the "Gold" is, in actuality, the family he has brought together again. (I suppose we could have a triple entendre in that it might also refer to the long-lost money that is at the crime subplot's core).

Peter Hits a Homer

Peter Fonda plays Ulee, a middle-aged beekeeper raising his incarcerated son's two daughters in rural northern Florida. Suddenly two of his son's partners in crime show up, dump the son's wife (who had abandoned the family years before) on their doorstep, and begin menacing around looking for lost loot. Ulee tries to do the right thing, but while "keeping it in the family".

Most directors and screenwriters today would go for tautness and intensity. Not here, though it is not lacking in drama. This is a study in family dynamics as three generations (and neighbors) try to pull it together and address the crises that confronts them.

Rent this movie. It is subtle, well-crafted, and the best work Peter Fonda has done in decades.
