GMA: Matthew McConaughey Mud Review
Some people are saying Matthew McConaughey is in a “McConassance,” and it seems like critics are running out of adjectives to describe his amazing performances as of late. They might even need to start thinking up new words to describe how excellent he is in the new movie Mud. Mud focuses on McConaughey’s character, named Mud, who is on the run after committing a murder out of love. He soon finds himself trudging along the Mississippi River with two teenage boys who have agreed to help him find the love of his life.
Tye Sheridan, one of the teens in the movie, is the reason the movie has been getting so much attention, said McConaughey.
“This is a coming of age story about him,” said McConaughey, who added that the movie is also about love and Mud teaching these two teenagers about what happens when the “idea of romance hits the ceiling of reality.”

McConaughey said the river was what inspired his character Mud. He said he stayed on the island with his kids for a few days camping out and taking a short vacation. It was then that he really got into character.
