MUD (M) 130 MIN

The Advertiser - SA Weekend - - MOVIES -

A knock­out film about hum­ble folk from Arkansas who eke out a liv­ing on the Mis­sis­sippi. It’s a re­turn to the best kind of story-telling; a boat lodged up a tree, two in­no­cent boys and a charis­matic man who they be­friend and who is wanted for mur­der. It’s a film about love, loy­alty, loss and fam­ily with echoes of Tom Sawyer and Mark Twain. Stand­out per­for­mances from Matthew McConaughe­y as Mud, and Tye Sheri­dan as the young El­lis.
