So It Goes x MUBI Film of the Week

In the third of our MUBI Film of the Week selections, we have chosen MUD by Jeff Nichols.

This compelling Southern Gothic fantasy was the breakout for the director, who has since been signposted as one of the most creative contemporary American filmmakers with works including Take Shelter and Midnight Special.

 

Part Stand By Me, part Beasts of the Southern Wild, MUD sees Matthew McConaughey revel in his role as the eponymous magical drifter visited by the inquisitive Ellis (Tye Sheridan) and Neckbone (Jacob Lofland) on his makeshift island homestead on the Mississippi River.
