Just a really well made movie. It will mean a lot more to young teen age boys probably.

Not a chick flick but not too gory or stressy aka. some potential for a grandma to watch with .

A really great film by Jeff Nichols that is heartwarming and also filled with sorrow at the same time. The acting is amazing and one of McConaughey's best movies and performances. Great cinematography and score as well.

Terrific engaging tale with powerful performances and a truly interesting plot and subplot. Seldom does a story about love intrigue like this one does, and the highs and lows in this movie do not disappoint.

Mud (Jeff Nichols): A coming-of-age story of a 14 and 40-year old. A film about innocence lost and growing up.

Watching this movie feels like dreaming, and you don't want to wake up.

A remarkable character sheet. It's a slow burn but definitely worth a watch.

All movies focused on kids from the south seem to come off a bit like Stand By Me but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Not sure it needed the bad guy story line as it didn't add to what was supposed to be the moral of the story, other than supplying the ending. Either way, good story. Well casted.

At times prodding and unintentionally giving off an "After-School Special" feel, "Mud" succeeds because of its strong performances by the cast, particularly Matthew McConaughey and the younger actors. Somewhat predictable & slow, but it pays off if you stick with it. I still believe McConaughey will win an Oscar someday. Movies like this one showcase his talent when he is playing against typecast and pulls it off with finesse.

A teenage boy receives lessons on how to be a man from a fugitive living on a boat stuck in a tree. Perfect.

Great performances, deep characters, and a well written script. Mud is a well made movie.

Absolutely love this movie. Fantastic
September 11, 2016
A masterpiece of story craft, Mud may be the punctuating affirmative to the notion that Jeff Nichols is currently a maestro of American independent cinema.
September 3, 2016
At a unique connective setting worked out a coming of age direction symbolically and as a puzzle with rough turns while adjacent with a dramatic plot, together brought out an effective breakout performance from Tye Sheridan and McConaughey at his independent best. (A-)

Well acted and brilliantly shot movie but the movie's pacing begs you to close your eyes and have a nap.
