Mud is the perfect kind of drama - compelling, interesting, thought-provoking, and devoid of sappiness.
It seems that these days some of the greatest films are those that can’t be found at a normal multiplex. These are known as independent films, or those that are produced outside of normal Hollywood studios. One such film is Mud, a seemingly simple story from writer-director Jeff Nichols starring Matthew McConaughey in the title role. Inspired by the works of Mark Twain, is Mud a truly epic tale of Southern drama?
