McConaughey and Witherspoon Star in 'No Ordinary Movie': Mud Commentary

Jeff Nichols’ ‘Mud’ is ‘no ordinary movie’ (photo: Matthew McConaughey in ‘Mud’) Ostensibly, writer-director Jeff NicholsMud is about the titular character, played by Matthew McConaughey, who’s on the run from the law and the family of a man he killed for love of a woman, Juniper, played by a bedraggled Reese Witherspoon. That’s a fine, if ordinary, foundation for a thriller — though this is no ordinary movie by any stretch. In fact, Mud isn’t even about the character Mud; instead, it’s a coming-of-age story that’s part mystery, fable, and thriller. Beneath it all lies a love story — indeed, several love stories, all tied together through the heart of a young boy called Ellis (The Tree of Life‘s Tye Sheridan in an accomplished performance): a witness to the death of love in his family, Ellis feels it in his heart and is willing to do anything,

One Tree Hill and me: the true cost of renting your home to a hit TV show

When John J Sullivan was given the chance to pay off the mortgage by renting out his home to the One Tree Hill crew, it seemed too good to be true. And so it proved…

Practically every day, cars stop in front of our house and people get out to take pictures of it, and of us – me and my wife and daughter – if we happen to be outside. Sometimes it's only one car. Other times it's eight or nine in a day. I really don't see them, since I don't leave the house that much, and they're always quiet; they never make trouble. But a month ago my new neighbour, Nicholas, who's just moved in next door, came over to introduce himself. He's a tall, thin guy in his 50s, glasses and a white beard. Very nice, very sociable. Before he left, he said, "Can I ask you something?

W. Earl Brown Interview Bloodworth

In the independent drama Bloodworth, E.F. Bloodworth (Kris Kristofferson) returns home to Tennessee to find the wife he walked out on (Frances Conroy) withered and faded, and his three sons – Warren (Val Kilmer), Boyd (Dwight Yoakam) and Brady (W. Earl Brown) – grown and soured by years of anger. Only Fleming (Reece Thompson), the old man’s grandson, treats him with the respect his age commands, and sees past all the hatred to realize the way it can poison a man’s soul. At the film’s press day, actor/screenwriter/producer W. Earl Brown talked about the roller coaster of getting financing for the film, having Kris Kristofferson sign on for the lead role, getting to meet one of his heroes and having it live up to the expectation, and how cathartic it can be to play a character that was so angry. He also talked about what he

Hilary Duff Goes Indie: A Conversation About Her New Film, Bloodworth

(Hilary Duff, in her role as Raven in Bloodworth, above.)

by Terry Keefe

As she says later in our interview, Hilary Duff likes a good challenge. The number of former child and teen stars who manage to sustain their success into their twenties, as Duff undeniably has, are few enough already, but even rarer are those who then develop into serious adult actors. Slowly, though, and almost under the radar, Hilary Duff has been turning in noteworthy, character-rich performances in a variety of lower-budgeted independent films, including According to Greta andStay Cool, both released in 2009. And, in this writer's opinion, Duff's strongest onscreen work to date is hitting theaters this week, with her nuanced turn as a good-hearted, but troubled, teen in the Southern gothic family drama Bloodworth.

Based on the novel Provinces of Night by William Gay, Bloodworth centers around a seriously dysfunctional, eponymous Tennessee brood, which reaches its

“Pirates” actually sails on familiar “Tides” — Sean’s review

By Sean O’Connell Johnny Depp prepares to set sail for a fourth “Pirates of the Caribbean” adventure, though several key cast and crew members from the original three films have dropped anchor. Gone are Orlando Bloom, Keira Knightley and director Gore Verbinski. In their place stands Penelope Cruz, Ian McShane, director Rob Marshall and a whole lot of 3D imagery. Before you plunk down gold coins on “On Stranger Tides,” read our review of the fourth “Pirates” film, which opens everywhere today:

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (** out of 4)

No one – not Johnny Depp; not producer Jerry Bruckheimer; not Walt Disney, himself – would have predicted that we’d be discussing a fourth “Pirates of the Caribbean” film when the studio gambled on a big-budget summer tentpole film based on a theme park ride.

Bloodworth Movie Review

Bloodworth Movie Review
Title: Bloodworth Director: Shane Dax Taylor Starring: Val Kilmer, Reece Thompson, Hilary Duff, Kris Kristofferson, Dwight Yoakam, W. Earl Brown, Frances Conroy, Hilarie Burton With its just-so production design, characterized chiefly by rust, and a gallery of weathered and otherwise stunted characters fumbling toward some vaguely defined senses of purpose or peace, “Bloodworth”, based on William Gay’s novel “Provinces of Night”, slots comfortably in the cinematic canon of Southern Gothic, wherein everything and everyone is dadgum country-fied, and, well, ain’t that interesting and grand? This isn’t to say that the film, a drama about the long shadows of alcoholism, familial neglect and demons unaddressed, is a terrible or hokey thing,...

Hilary Duff Interview Bloodworth

In the independent drama Bloodworth, former Disney star Hilary Duff proves she has the acting chops, taking on the role of Raven, a young woman from another town that gives Fleming Bloodworth (Reece Thompson) the courage to reject his family curse and see past all the hatred and anger that has destroyed his family. Herself the daughter of an alcoholic prostitute (Sheila Kelley), Raven yearns for another way of life, much like aspiring writer Fleming, and the two see a way to find that in each other. At the film’s press day, actress Hilary Duff talked about the appeal of a role like this, the challenge of identifying with a character like Raven, how awkward it was to play a pregnant girl, and how she hopes that this film will show people that, against all odds, you can change your life path for the better.

Bloodworth | Review

Director: Shane Dax Taylor Writers: W. Earl Brown (screenplay), William Gay (novel) Starring: Val Kilmer, Kris Kristofferson, Hilary Duff, Reece Thompson, Dwight Yoakam, Frances Conroy, W. Earl Brown, Hilarie Burton, Sheila Kelley, Barry Corbin Ever stumble across a recipe that looks amazing on paper, has all the right ingredients to whet your appetite, but after you spend a couple of hours in the kitchen you wind up with a disappointing dish? That's Bloodworth in a nutshell for me. When I heard about this film my mouth watered just a little bit. A southern gothic family drama featuring Kris Kristofferson as a washed up country singer with Dwight Yoakam and Val Kilmer as his violent depressive alcoholic and hedonistic redneck sons? Throw in an appearance by Barry Corbin and a tiny cameo by Hank Williams' (that's Sr., mind you) grandson, Hank III for good measure. And T-Bone Burnett as Executive Music Producer?

Exclusive: W. Earl Brown Talks Bloodworth

Exclusive: W. Earl Brown Talks Bloodworth
Shane Dax Taylor directs the drama Bloodworth from a script by W. Earl Brown, based on the William Gay novel 'Provinces of Night'. W. Earl Brown also stars as one of three sons forced to reconcile with their long-estranged father (Kris Kristofferson) who reemerges days before his death to reckon with the aftermath his disappearance has caused the family.

We recently caught up with W. Earl Brown, who is nearly unrecognizable in the role of Brady Bloodworth, to chat about the movie, which opens this Friday, May 20th. We kicked things off by discussing his role on the hit FX series Justified, where his stated love for whiskey and Prince's Hot Chicken has bolstered attendance inside this Nashville hole in the wall.

Here is our conversation:

When you said the words 'Prince's Hot Chicken' on Justified, did you know that you were adding at least a 30 to 40 minute
