Ren’s Recommendations: ‘Mud’ on Netflix

Netflix is a wonderful resource of entertainment that I find myself turning to constantly. If you’re not binge-(re)watching episodes of the sixth season of Mad Men before the recent seventh season premiere, like I just was, then you may be looking for some other sort of distraction on the tube. Well, I’m here to recommend that you watch the recently added film, Mud. Another project that Matthew McConaughey can add to his McConaissance (Yes, I fully support this term and movement), the movie follows two young teenage boys (including a boy nicknamed Neckbone!) who come across a drifter (McConaughey) in a quiet but earnest story set along the murky Mississippi River shores. Keep your eyes open for the great Michael Shannon who has a small role but speaks the film’s best (and funniest) lines.
