Amber's Review of Mud

4 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes


It isn't often that a story told through film can be both heart-warming and exciting. The youthful point-of-view in which this story is delightfully told is not held back by tropes or underestimation of a 14-year-old's mind. McConaughey shows his stripes in a perfectly casted role of a man living in squalor as he waits for his beloved and I see so many reviews for this film praising him, but I think it is Tye Sheridan that truly formed this film into a contender. Mud is an all-around beautiful film with a beautiful message told through a mixture of tragedy and hope.
