MUD (PG 13):

This movie relates the story of two boys who are close friends and one day out of nowhere they find a man hiding in an island.

Directed by Jeff Nichols and actors Matthew McConaughey, Tye Sheridan, Jacob Lofland and Reese Witherspoon this adventurous story of these two friends who are technically helping a criminal will find themselves in a circle of intrigues and dilemmas.


Wallace Avery is tired of his life. Divorced, disconnected from his son, dissatisfied with his love life, he decides the time has come for a radical solution. He literally walks away from his life, buys himself a new identity as Arthur Newman, and sets out toward his own private Oz - Terre Haute, Indiana - where he believes he has a chance to work as a golf pro. Wallace's idea of a second chance is to become a second person. His road trip is derailed by the entrance of Michaela Fitzgerald, whom Arthur discovers passed out poolside at a motel. It takes her all of a couple hours to bust Arthur's identity scam. It takes Arthur a lot longer to bust hers.


Directed by Nicholas DiBella and actors Crawford Wilson, Kayla Compton, James McDaniel, Lynn Whitfield bring to the big screen a film that surely relates with our modern society. This movie tells the story of a young man whose whole life was ruled by gangs, drugs and many of the same problems our youth face today. After going to prison at an early age (15 years old), he makes a turn in his life with the help of his new loving and caring foster family, who tries to guide him in the right direction, a better and stronger spiritual life closer to God.  But as much as he wants to leave his past behind, it continues to haunt him when a gang threatens to kill him and his new family testing his new faith and convictions.  

This is a great movie with an excellent message, especially for our teens that need guidance and good role models, and movies like this one, can help them make better choices.
