Haven’t even watched this yet. About to. Just got home from a screening of Jeff Nichols‘ Mud (Lionsgate/Roadside, 4.26). One of the year’s best in my book. Steady, solid and delivered just right. A coming-of-age story without a drop of treacly sentiment and no pandering to the saps. One of the finest Southern-flavored dramas about small-town rural values that I’ve ever seen, right up there with Sling Blade, Tender Mercies, The Straight Story, The Trip to Bountiful.
