Directed by Jeff Nichols. Starring Reese Witherspoon, Matthew McConaughey, Tye Sheridan, Jacob Lofland, and Sam Shepard.


A pair of inquisitive adolescents encounter a charismatic drifter with an incredible story in this drama from Take Shelter writer/director Jeff Nichols. Mississippi adolescents Ellis (Tye Sheridan) and Neckbone (Jacob Lofland) are exploring along the mighty Mississippi when they stumble upon a small island inhabited by Mud (Matthew McConaughey), a desperado who claims to be on the run from brutal bounty hunters after killing a man in Texas. According to Mud, his true love Juniper (Reese Witherspoon) is awaiting his arrival in town, and together they plan to make a daring escape. Fascinated, the two boys agree to help Mud slip past his pursuers, despite the potential dangers of doing so. Sam Shepard, Sarah Paulson, and Michael Shannon co-star.

An excellent film, which reminded me of Stand By Me. Two boys have an adventure that leads to a secret. Great performances by everyone in the film, and a true "man's" coming-of-age film that has nothing to do with sex, but everything to do with loyalty and integrity.

This one is a must see movie. And this comes from a person who cant stand Matthew McConaughey. Reminded me of The Beasts of the Southern World.
