Ulee's Gold

  • The Cary Theater 122 East Chatham Street Cary, NC, 27511 United States (map)

Peter Fonda received a richly deserved Oscar nomination for his superb performance as Ulysses “Ulee” Jackson, a Florida beekeeper forced to put his splintered family back together. Ulee is a Vietnam veteran whose wife died several years ago, a blow he’s still learning to live with. His son Jimmy (Tom Wood) is in prison, and his daughter-in-law Helen (Christine Dunford) ran away, leaving Ulee to raise their two daughters by himself. Ulee is a quiet man who has a hard time displaying warmth and does not always deal well with the rebellious children put in his care.
