A sexually-charged, homoerotic, all-star film noir from Academy Award-nominated director Lee Daniels (Precious: Based on the Novel "Push" by Sapphire, Shadowboxer, The Butler), The Paperboy takes audiences deep into the backwaters of steamy 1960s South Florida, as investigative reporter Ward Jansen (Matthew McConaughey) and his partner Yardley Acheman (David Oyelowo) chase a sensational, career-making story. With the help of Ward's younger brother Jack (Zac Efron) and sultry death-row groupie Charlotte Bless (Nicole Kidman), the pair tries to prove violent swamp-dweller Hillary Van Wetter (John Cusack) was framed for the murder of a corrupt local sheriff. Based on the provocative bestselling novel by Peter Dexter, The Paperboy peels back ay small town's decades-old facade of Southern gentility to reveal a quagmire of evil as dark as a Florida bayou.

This film is a tawdry, raunchy ordeal. You may very well feel like you need a shower after watching it. It is hard to understand how anyone could have talked these stars into being involved in this. You have been warned.
