The Atlanta Film Festival has announced its decision to play ‘Mud’ on its opening night. If that decision isn’t enough to get you excited about the film, check out the new poster below. Looks like a good one, folks!
Check out the synposis of the film (Empire Online):
Mud sees McConaughey playing the title character, a grizzled fugitive whose riverside hideout is stumbled upon by two kids called Ellis (Tye Sheridan) and Neckbone (Jacob Lofland). All three feature prominently on the promo, but who are the other figures? Glad you asked. There’s Mud’s childhood flame Juniper (Reese Witherspoon), for whom he still holds a candle, and the great Sam Shepard as the boys’ concerned neighbour, Tom Blankenship.
Each reacts very differently to McConaughey’s other-worldly fugitive, with the youngsters left to puzzle out whether the mysterious figure represents good or evil.
