We went to see Greater Sunday afternoon (see Tuesday’s column) and it is one of the best movies I’ve seen in years and it has zero to do with the fact that Brandon Burlsworth was an Arkansas Razorbacks.
It is just a great and truthful story of one young man’s commitment.
I also enjoyed seeing some familiar faces in the movie. Grant Cook, former Hog, did a masterful job of playing Grant Garrett, Burlsworth’s roommate and friend.
Others with smaller roles included (and this may not be the entire list: Houston Nutt, who played a janitor, Gary Newton, Brandon Eells who played his dad Paul Eells, Candyce Hinkle and Kevin Trainor.
