The Paperboy

[15]

Duration:107 mins
Director: Lee Daniels
Starring: Matthew McConaughey, Nicole Kidman, Zac Efron, John Cusack

Following his persuasively thuggish role as KILLER JOE, Matthew McConaughey further expands his oeuvre as cynical reporter Ward Jansen, who returns to his steamy Florida hometown to argue that a convicted murderer should be spared the electric chair. The quest for the truth is not helped by either the prisoner himself or his prison groupie, a pair played so spectacularly against type by John Cusack and Nicole Kidman as to be almost unrecognisable.

Co-written with director Lee Daniels (PRECIOUS) by Pete Dexter from his own novel, THE PAPERBOY boasts cunning plot twists, frequently hilarious dialogue, and impressive performances from a cast that includes Scott Glenn as the Jansen boys’ gruff newspaperman father and singer Macy Gray as the family’s world-weary maid.

A dark, deeply gratifying gem of modern American cinema.
