Mud – Movie Review


Matthew McConaughey is in the middle of a career resurgence. Does Mud continue his winning streak? Hit the jump to watch my full review…

Official Synopsis: Two young boys encounter a fugitive and form a pact to help him evade the bounty hunters on his trail and to reunite him with his true love.

Review Summary: Mud is pure cinema. It’s the type of film that’s miraculously heartwarming, while also mournful and filled with sorrow. The talented cast give excellent performances in one of the first great films of 2013. Matthew McConaughey is a revelation as the title character, and young Tye Sheridan and Jacob Lofland give two of the best performances from young actors I’ve seen in years.
