Lionsgate Films and Roadside Attractions have revealed that they are planning to bring to Blu-ray director Jeff Nichols' latest film, Mud (2012), starring Matthew McConaughey, Tye Sheridan, and Jacob Lofland. The preliminary release date set by the distributors is August 6th.
Official synopsis: Mud is a coming-of-age drama centered around two fourteen-year-old boys who encounter a mysterious fugitive hiding out on an island in the Mississippi. Intrigued by this man, they enter into a pact to help him evade capture and reconnect with the love of his life. Though it is hard for the boys to discern truth from fiction when it comes to Mud, it isn't long until their small Arkansas town is besieged by a beautiful girl with a line of hunters in tow.
Note: Mud had its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival last year, where it was nominated for the prestigious Palme d'Or Award.

I saw it today and LOVED it. Terrific film. A great old-fashioned southern drama. So well-made. This and The Place Beyond The Pines are the two best films of the year so far, IMO. If anyone here hasn't checked this out yet and it's playing near them I highly recommend doing so.
I saw this two weeks ago and was really blown away by it. It is hard for me to imagine that a film of this quality is not shown in theaters across this country while the usual parade of shit films pack my local cineplex.
Saw this several weeks ago. Took my mom, who isn't big on movies and is pretty picky, and even she thought it was excellent. Day 1 buy for me for sure, and at the current preorder price on Amazon, I'd say a pretty safe blind buy for just about anybody.
