A sexually and racially-charged film noir from Oscar®-nominated director Lee Daniels (Precious: Based on the Novel "Push" by Sapphire, Shadowboxer), 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 façade of Southern gentility to reveal a quagmire of evil as dark as a Florida bayou.

Reasons to Buy

  1. The Paperboy comes from Lee Daniels, the award-winning gay director behind Shadowboxer and Precious: Based on the Novel "Push" by Sapphire.
  2. This movie has been called a unintentionally hilarous cult classic in the making - up there with Showgirls. The AV Club said that it is destined for "campy, drag queen-hosted midnight movie infamy."
  3. The best part? Zac Efron is sexually objectified throughout the whole movie. There is a scene where he dances in the rain wearing only his tighty-whities and another (now notorious) scene where Nicole Kidman pees on his jellyfish sting.

Seriously, this film has no redeeming social value whatsoever. It manages to make Matthew McConaughey and Nicole Kidman look ugly with and without their clothes on and everyone seem hard up for acting experience. What were they thinking?

This was an excellent movie, not what I was expecting. Zac Efron is a man now, no kid anymore, and that's the primary subject of the Paperboy.
