What the Critics say

ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconOverall, however, itís a stirring coming-of-age tale that approaches the subject matter from an unconventional perspective in that it asks one important question: when growing up, is the belief in love more important than its actuality? Mud doesn't resolve the issue, but it explores it in detail.

T. Durgin quote iconThe biggest lesson I learned is that it's totally worth it to pay good money to see a good, little film nestled between theaters showing Iron Man 3 and The Great Gatsby.

Tomatometer quote iconBolstered by a strong performance from Matthew McConaughey in the title role, Mud offers an engaging Southern drama that manages to stay sweet and heartwarming without being sappy.
