The Paperboy

 

 

This has multi-Oscar nominations written all over it… at least that is what they are going for here. An all-star cast (Matthew McConaughey, Nicole Kidman, John Cusack, Scott Glenn, Zac Efron, David Oyelowo, Macy Gray) brings weight to Lee Daniels gritty period drama. Set in 1960’s Florida, just as much a character in the film as a location, the story is about a small time newspaper and it’s reporters investigating the case of a death row inmate. With the pedigree of the writer/director (Daniels) and the fantastic cast, if it plays out like it should this could be critical acclaim heavy. It is getting a limited release in early October, which I am sure, is to get it out for consideration.
