Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Mexico - As part of their Every Tuesday Night Film series, the Costa Banderas Chapter of Democrats Abroad presents 2013's award winning drama, Mud. This documentary-style film will be shown at the Paradise Community Center on March 11th, at 7 pm.
Mud - Directed by Jeff Nichols, this engaging coming-of-age movie is a timeless adventure about two boys, Ellis and Neckbone, who find a mysterious outlaw named Mud (Oscar winner, Matthew McConaughey) hiding out on a deserted island in the Mississippi River. Described by the Wall Street Journal as "a newly minted American Classic," Mud's fantastic tales of killing a man soon come true as the town is besieged by bounty hunters after Mud's blood. Review aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes gave the film a score of 98%, based on reviews from 150 critics, with the site's consensus: "Bolstered by a strong performance from Matthew McConaughey in the title role, Mud offers an engaging Southern drama that manages to stay sweet and heartwarming without being sappy."
Gates open at 6:00 pm and all films begin at 7:00 pm.
