I can't say I completely understood this movie all the time but I could not look away.
The only thing I knew about this movie was that Nicole Kidman really urinated on Zac Efron during the filming. Yes, I can see why that is newsworthy, but there was so much more to the movie than the much talked about golden shower scene.
This movie follows an investigative reporter, his partner, his brother and a death row groupie as they try to prove a violent swamp-dwellers was framed for the murder of a corrupt local sheriff.
The casting, costumes, set and filming was fantastic and gave you the impression it was really set in the 1960s.
I don't want to ruin any moment of this, but Zac Efron has grown up since High School reunion, Matthew McConaughey's role went places I didn't expect, Nicole Kidman was brassy, sensitive and unpredictable, my forever crush on John Cuzak died a very, swift death AND Macy Gray is a superstar. When Macy Gray was on screen, I couldn't look at anyone else.
This movie is not for children (or teenagers, or the prudish, or to watch with your in-laws).
