Check Out We Buy Your Kids' Poster Art for Jeff Nichols' Film 'Mud'
Mud. Not the most appealing name, but one outstanding indie film. Mud is the third feature from Jeff Nichols, director of Shotgun Stories and Take Shelter previously, and stars Matthew McConaughey, as well as two young actors Tye Sheridan and Jacob Lofland. I saw it at Cannes last year and loved it (my review), but many other critics have since seen it at Sundance and praised it. Calling it "a riff on Mark Twain, and an exploration of the relationships between generations of men. It could be a Tom Waits song" (Russ Fischer on SlashFilm) or a "mesmerizing story to both hear and watch" (Allison Loring on FSR). The film is also premiering at SXSW this weekend and Mondo commissioned a poster for the event. See it below!
Mud is screening at SXSW this weekend, and this art is part of Mondo's SXSW series. I really love this film, and I'm happy to support and keep mentioning it as much as I can so that everyone makes sure to go see it.
Mud stars Tye Sheridan and Jacob Lofland as Ellis and Neckbone, two young boys living on the Mississippi who encounter a drifter with a sordid past, played by Matthew McConaughey. In my review, I described it as "Stand By Me of the Southern Wild because it's a blend of the classic Stand By Me and the charm of Sundance hit Beasts of the Southern Wild." The official description calls Mud "a riveting mystery thriller set in American river country with a stellar cast by one of our greatest new cinematic voices." Yep, I agree. After being acquired by Roadside Attractions, Mud will arrive in theaters starting on April 26th just next month.
