Great acting by Mathew, and......the two boys!! It keeps you in suspense in all ways, and the boys were so challenging in resolving their desires to help "Mud". As far as "Reese", I won't go there! I think its ok for kids, too.

All around fantastic view of a seldom seen slice of rural America expertly acted, directed, and filmed. Every actor's performance seemed as genuine as the surroundings.

This is not a movie like so many that are casualties of talent, or studio production hamstrings that ultimately fall short of the creative ambitions and released as mere cinematic "efforts" - this is a movie that "achieves". The splendor of Jeff Nichol's immersive and captivating story of life's everyday heroes and villains that "come down the river" can not be missed.

Movie had good write ups. Showed how misguided dedicated love can mess you up sometimes. Not all women are alike apparently. Neat that the boys and this hide away guy bonded to get him off the island. Ended a bit strange but its a good movie.

The synopsis doesn't justify the story as it unfolds - great story and super acting. While expectations were low going in, the Wow factor kicked in quickly. This is an award candidate between the acting, characters and filming. Excellent Movie!!
