The Paperboy

I missed this film when it was fist released and was happy to see an advert at the Garneau. Nicole Kidman stars as a death-row groupie. It's Oscar nominated and also stars suave studs John Cusack and Zac Effron...oh, and Matthew McConaughey too. Ladies, hold on tight!

"The Paperboy takes audiences deep into the backwaters of steamy 1960s south Florida, as investigation reporter and his partner chase a sensational, career-making story. The pair tries to prove violent swamp-dweller was framed for the murder of a corrupt local sheriff.

The movie peels back a sleepy small town's decades-old facade of Southern gentility to reveal a quagmire of evil as dark as a Florida bayou."

Tickets are $8 each for Matinee ($6 for Students/Seniors). Metro Cinema online has a link to the official trailer: http://www.metrocinema.org/film_view/3922/ (Spoiler Alert! There are a lot of scenes in the trailer that I think might be near the end of the film).

Meet in the lobby near the lounge couches (past the snack stand) between 1:30 and 1:45. The movie starts at 2 pm.

I will have a yellow sunflower on my lapel for identification. Cheers:)

    Like the style of filming, loved some of the performances but overall, the movie was not very consistent. Zac Efron is stil at the eye candy stage to be considered an actor and everybosy else was really trying to steal the movie which made it pure soap. Lots of laughs both intentional and unintentional and I thought it was a great film to make fun of in some parts. It's not the Room for super bad but it's got lofty aspirations.

    A good break from Hollywood and well acted. Storyline was different and gory but actually quiet realistic as it portrays a woman in love with a man who is jailed, this happens perhaps more often then we think, and shows the outcome of being involved with someone of this state rather than a good guy which she latter on regrets letting go of.

    Bad timing: on that day I'll be at Truc Lam taking my formal vows. It sounds like a great film and I'd like to see it, but aren't Garnau films on one night only?

      Hi Beth. It depends on the film...some are limited to one or two showings. The Paperboy has quite a few dates. Go to their website to find a day that works for you (see link above in the description).

    I know little about this except everyone in it is acting like their lives depended on it! Sounds good to me;)
