Mud (2012) - Matthew McConaughey , Reese Witherspoon
I have to say the actors who played the two boys ,Tye Sheridan and Jacob Lofland, were good and I mean really good , so good in fact that I hope to the movie gods that they are on their way to Oscar gold and not on the path of Lindsay Lohan and Amanda Bynes . They are the driving force of the movie , aside from the fact that they are in most of the scenes , they tend to outshine their much older colleagues . And Matthew McConaughey is still very much just Matthew McConaughey in this film, you know sometimes I cannot really tell the difference from each of the characters he plays . Sometimes I feel like each movie is just Matthew McConaughey thrown in a different situation , but I have to give him this , in this movie he really fits the role well , despite looking like an amateur next to the two boys . But don't let that fact distract you from how really good this film is and how cynical , the dude who wrote this must have been burnt bad because when it comes to love there is a recurring theme of cynicism . Oh and Reese Witherspoon is in this , her role is small but she delivers well . The storyline is great , there are a lot of nice moments , and if you are a dude and you put this movie too much to heart , you may never marry , but all in all a great movie , great cast even if Matthew McConaughey is still just Matthew McConaughey.
