Paul Newman makes his directorial debut in the sweeping saga Sometimes a Great Notion. Based on the best-selling novel from author and icon Ken Kesey (his follow-up to One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest), the story focuses on a two-fisted Oregon family that bucks their close-knit timber community to deliver a shipment of logs in defiance of a strike. In the process, one man is killed, the family patriarch Henry (Henry Fonda) is injured, and the eldest son Hank (Paul Newman) almost loses his wife (Lee Remick) to his half brother (Michael Sarrazin). Filled with complex characters and issues that still resonate today, Sometimes a Great Notion is an intense and riveting portrait of life set against the rugged backdrop of logging.

So i ordered it for him Friday, and it arrived Tuesday= thanks to the perks of free 2 day shipping, through amazon prime!
My husband is a logger, in Oregon- and some of the guys he works with recommended this movie.
We really enjoyed it. It shows a good true side to Oregon loggers, even the process of the equipment, which many don't get to see. It is not like the t.v show that's full of drama. Sometimes a great notion, is a wonderful movie featuring Paul Newman. It's got a great story line behind it, with great acting skills. Looks like it was filmed right in our Oregon mountains as well, but i'm not sure.
I highly recommend this movie!
