From Oscar-nominated director Lee Daniels [Precious] comes a provocative, sexually-charged tale of desire, ambition, prejudice and crime set in the 1960s swamplands of South Florida.
Starring Matthew McConaughey, Zac Efron, David Oyelowo, Macy Gray, John Cusack and Academy Award winner Nicole Kidman, The Paperboy dips into the gritty human underside of a murder investigation, as a compelling cast of characters confront obsession, deception and their own dark, dark demons on the muddy road towards retribution.
It all begins in the steamy rural backwater of Moat County, Florida, where things have been done the same way for decades, yet change is bubbling beneath the surface. Boyish Jack Jansen [Efron], son of the local newspaper publisher, has just returned home after being kicked out of college, only to take the lowly job of paperboy.
But that too changes when his idolised journalist brother Ward [McConaughey] comes to town from Miami on the trail of a story that could make his career...
