The Paperboy

United States | 2012 | Lee Daniels

The Paperboy

Lee Daniels’ follow-up to Precious received the longest sustained standing ovation (16 min.) at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. It’s a lurid, tawdry, sexually-charged Southern melodrama, set in the torrid heat and alligator-infested swamps of 1969 Florida, about a Miami crime reporter (Matthew McConaughey) who returns to his backwater hometown to investigate a possible bum murder rap. John Cusack (startlingly scary) is the redneck death row inmate who may be wrongly imprisoned, Nicole Kidman (superb) is his skanky sexpot fiancée who lobbies for his release, and Zac Efron (sexy) is the reporter’s younger brother, a sultry slacker who lounges around in his jockey shorts and witnesses the whole sordid circus. With Macy Gray. A 2012 New York Film Festival selection.
