EXTRA EXTRA - THE PAPERBOY DELIVERS!

Filmmaker Lee Daniels is no stranger to controversial, if not disturbing subject matter.   His #OscarWinner PRECIOUS left an indelible mark on audiences for his gritty and all too real portrayal of an abusive and dysfunctional family, and one girls journey out of a horrific life. NICOLE KIDMAN IN THE PAPERBOY

With The Paperboy, Daniels has been able to leverage his legitimized standing as an Oscar nominated director and attract a level of Hollywood talent that are Tabloid, Red Carpet, and Media magnets.   Nicole Kidman stars as a death row groupie with her heart set on a derelict killer played by John CusackMatthew McConnaughey is a newspaper reporter (hence the title) trying to uncover the evil secrets hiding under every rock in this 1960's based story of a South Florida bayou town.   Get ready for a bumpy ride. NICOLE KIDMAN, ZAC EFFRON, & MATTHEW McCONAUGHEY  The twists and turns even surprised this jaded viewer, and Mr. Daniels really likes to go to extremes to get his point across. His ability to make you uncomfortable as you wait on the edge of your seat for the inevitable is a cruel talent.  

Sixties fashion references are always enjoyable to watch on the big screen, and so strange to see how mainstream that look is today.   You would almost not know it was a retro film, with the effect Mad Men has had on the fashion world.   Companies from Prada to Banana Republic have morphed their style to the 1960's,  thanks in part to Don Draper.
