Audience Reviews for Tol'able David
There is a lot of drama going on in this movie, but it's realistic and heartfelt. If you like a good silent drama, see this movie. Personally, it didn't keep my interest enough because it was purely dramatic, and the ending is predictable.
If you look up hardcore in the dictionary this is what you will see. David could kick Arnold's butt any day of the week.
With an engaging underdog protagonist, ample use of location shooting, and performances subtler than usual for the era, here's the rare silent movie that doesn't feel awkwardly staged.
