Here's the trailer for a film called Mud, which is scheduled to be shown at The Sundance Film Festival, which we will be leaving for tomorrow. The movie was directed by Jeff Nichols who made the great film Take Shelter, in which Michael Shannon gave one of the best performances of his career.
His new movie stars Resse Witherspoon, as well as Matthew McConaughey in a different role than we're used to seeing him in. He plays a mysterious man who leads two young boys on an intriguing adventure that turns into something dangerous. Nichols is a great director and storyteller, and I'm looking forward to checking this one out!
Two boys, Ellis and his friend Neckbone, who find a man named Mud hiding out on an island in the Mississippi. Mud describes fantastic scenarios — he killed a man in Texas and vengeful bounty hunters are coming to get him. He says he is planning to meet and escape with the love of his life, Juniper, who is waiting for him in town. Skeptical but intrigued, Ellis and Neckbone agree to help him. It isn’t long until Mud’s visions come true and their small town is besieged by a beautiful girl with a line of bounty hunters in tow.
You'll get a chance to see the movie for yourself on April 26th. Look out for our review of it, and watch the trailer below.
