Once a major Hollywood star, Vic Edwards (Burt Reynolds, in a role tailor-made for him) reluctantly accepts an invitation to be the special guest at a Nashville film festival and receive a lifetime achievement award. When the film fest turns out to be a slapdash wannabe gala, Vic tells his messed-up millennial driver Lil (Ariel Winter) to take him to his hometown of Knoxville. There Vic reconnects with his past and rediscovers a side of himself he hasn’t seen since he became a box office sensation in the 1970s. As Vic comes to grips with who he was, who he is and who he could still become, he helps Lil put her own life into focus. With Chevy Chase.

2013, Chiller Films, USA, Dir: Brett Simmons
