By the time I got to a work colleague's farewell dinner in the evening I was my own serve of fresh hell, but I was raised to be good to my word so I just refused to not go, after all I said I would be there. And if I say I will be there, come hell or high water (head cold included) I WILL BE THERE!
So excited to see that my favourite Spanish restaurant was back on fire, the food was again at the fabulous standard I expect from them. I can forgive them a bad night, just a shame it was the night that Craig and I went there, but that is the bitter irony of talking shit up too much.
So home again by 9.30pm, hitting the meds and the couch in a big way.
Need me some quality drama.....
Release Date: 2012
Running Time: 130 mins
This movie haled the beginning of the McConaissance, which is basically the re-invention of Matthew McConaughey from ridiculous rom-com love interest roles into a string of highly reputable and successful films in the last two years.
Mud is a film about love, but there is nothing cheesy about this movie; it is a charming and rich tale exploring the many facets of love through the eyes of men.
The story takes place on the Mississippi River and revolves around two small town teens that meet a mysterious drifter, on the run from the law, named Mud. The boys try to help Mud reunite with his lost love, whilst going through their own rites of passage.
Tye Sheridan and Jacob Lofland are amazing as the troubled teens, Reece Witherspoon is at her best and Michael Shannon has a small yet meaningful role. But Matthew McConaughey is the heartbeat of this movie, encapsulating every element of Mud with a perfection that we have since come to expect from him.
FINAL SAY: Mississippi Mud sure is delicious.
