Cannes 2012: Two clips from MUD hit

Who would have thought that Matthew McConaughey would be the one lighting the Croisette on fire this year?

With THE PAPERBOY already getting a brief glimpse earlier this Thursday, McConaughey’s second Cannes entry, Jeff Nichols’ MUD, contains an offering that  looks as superb as you would expect.

The film stars McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Tye Sheridan and the incomparable Michael Shannon, and follows the relationship between a fugitive and a young boy in Mississippi.   Nichols is coming off of huge hype following the release of TAKE SHELTER last year, and this looks to capitalize on that in a major way.  We have two clips from the film, thanks to Rope Of Silicon, and it looks like McConaughey is on the absolute top of his game. Toss in Shannon and you have a film that should be quite an interesting one to keep an eye on when it hits Cannes on May 26.
