I liked this movie a lot. There is a certain thing Duvall does with his voice (which shows you that Billy Bob Thorton won an oscar because he saw this movie), but I got used to it. The actress who played the pregnant woman I didn't like, but the writing didn't help. The thing that saves this movie is Duvall who is great and the final voice over is really nice.

I didn't see this until 36 years after it was first made. The kindness and gentleness of Robert Duvall's character was touching.

Stark black and white cinematography gives this film a timeless feeling... Beautiful acting by Duvall.

TOMORROW is a very young Robert Duvall at his most powerful; it is Robert Faulkner (story by); it is Ansel Adams (stunning but stark black-and-white cinematography). Though from a Faulkner story, it could as easily have been by Flannery O'Connor or Eudora Welty-- it has some of that raw power and charm. Duvall is on record as saying he considers this one of his finest performances, in this reviewer's judgment even exceeding that in Tender Mercies. This is a great (as in superlative and timeless) movie, building with exquisite slowness, like a Bruckner symphony, to build a meditative cinematic masterpiece. Still mostly undiscovered, it will have a renascence someday. Recommended in the highest terms.

William Faulner story based on a play by Horton Foote about a simpleton, Jackson played by Robert DuVall's first major starring role on a featuture film looking for solitude adapting to a shack amongst the backwoods. While living alone by himself isolated amongst the woods, he comes across an uneducated pregnant woman! From their he builds a rapport and decides to take her under his wing! Great performances was what was needed to pull this off and it delivered! This can also be a reflection about those hard times where uneducated men go searching for work and a identity! Somewhat small budget movie with excellent perfomances!

Outstanding drama with remarkable performances from everyone in the cast. Robert Duvall gives one of his best performances, Olga Bellin reminds me of Geraldine Page and she is terrific. Sudie Bond is great in a supporting role. Brilliantly directed, it has a great feel to it. The cinematography is excellent.
