Mud hits the big screen this week and sees Jeff Nichols back in the director’s chair.
The movie, which he has written, sees the director team up with actor Matthew McConaughey, which is continuing to take on more challenging and daring roles.
The actor really has changed the course of his career with the likes of Killer Joe, Magic Mike and The Lincoln Lawyer under his belt in recent years.
Mud sees McConaughey team up with Reese Witherspoon and Michael Shannon while we are introduced to the acting talents of Tye Sheridan and Jacob Lofland.
We go behind the scenes of the movie with this new video:
Mud is an adventure about 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.
Mud is out now.
