Our next Rialto Recommends is writer/director Jeff Nichols 2013 film MUD starring Matthew McConaughey. Two young boys encounter a fugitive and form a pact to help him evade the vigilantes that are on his trail and to reunite him with his true love. Bolstered by a strong performance from Matthew McConaughey in the title role, MUD offers an engaging Southern drama that manages to stay sweet and heartwarming without being sappy. Time Magazine raved "Glorious vision of youth and truth, love and loss, your name is Mud." While the Los Angeles Times said in 2013 "One of the most creatively rich and emotionally rewarding movies to come along this year." MUD is streaming on HBOMax, Netflix and PlutoTV. It is also available to rent for a modest fee from Apple, Amazon, GooglePlay, YouTube, Vudu and others. In 2016 Jeff Nichols would go on to write and direct the film Loving which we previously recommended.
