MCC International Film Series - "Mud"

Manchester Community College's International Film Series for Fall 2013 contains films from Australia, Spain, USA, and UK.  There will be an optional brief discussion, along with a potluck dessert, after each film.



Mud (United States) - Mud is an adventure about two boys, Ellis and his friend Neckbone, who find a man named Mud hiding out on an island in the Mississippi. Mud describes fantastic scenarios-he killed a man in Texas and vengeful bounty hunters are coming to get him. He says he is planning to meet and escape with the love of his life, Juniper, who is waiting for him in town. Skeptical but intrigued, Ellis and Neckbone agree to help him. It isn't long until Mud's visions come true and their small town is besieged by a beautiful girl with a line of bounty hunters in tow. Matthew McConaughey stars as Mud. 130 mins. Drama. English. Rated PG-13.    http://mud-themovie.com/

    My friend and I got there late. I enjoyed the movie after a very stressful week. I can rarely stay for discussion after because I don't have time for dinner ahead of time so had to go get dinner.

    Sorry that I didn't see anybody else. The discussion afterwards was very lively and interesting in how people perceived the community shown in the film. And Matthew McConaughey shirtless is always a plus!
