We've just gotten the news that we'll get Mud on May 17. This boys-on-the-river, man-on-the-run story harkens to Stand By Me and Mark Twain's The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.
Matthew McConaughey is Mud, a fugitive in Arkansas. He meets two teenage boys, Ellis (Tye Sheridan, Tree of Life) and Neckbone (Jacob Lofland), who make a pact to help him evade bounty hunters and reunite him with his true love (Reese Witherspoon).
"One of the most creatively rich and emotionally rewarding movies to come along this year." (Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times)
