Just been to see "Mud" ... A really impressive and moving contemporary version of Huck Finn in many ways and details. The big difference being it is without the political themes of Twain. It instead focuses on the nature of a 14 year-old boy's emotional coming-of-age as he starts to understand more about love. If you're a romantic at heart I suspect you'll love it. I was blown away, especially by the 1st half. All the performances are great. In the middle of all the over-priced over-engineered stuff the studios are throwing at us, this is the sort of film that reminded me why I love American cinema.
