Earl Stone – world war veteran, ex-military – has become an almost fanatical breeder of daylilies. Beginning as an eccentric quirk, his horticultural obsession quickly estranges him from his family, and leads him to ruin. More for amusement than anything, the octogenarian takes up a new adventure, running drugs for a Mexican gang. Now the gangsters are going to have to learn to live with this stubborn old man…
It’s not just the nonchalant, astonishingly hilarious performance given by Eastwood – soon to turn 89 – that makes this road movie cum family melodrama cum drug thriller into a highlight of the season.
