I caught Jeff Nichols’ “Mud” yesterday in advance of its North American bow at Sundance next week and was bowled over. Over the moon. Full tilt in love with this movie, but I’ll get into that during the festival.
Today, Roadside Attractions has released the first trailer for the film via Yahoo! Movies, which builds on its thriller aspects well enough but really isn’t the most honest representation of what the film is. But that’s fine. This will get people into the theater.
Check out the trailer above and stay tuned this week for further thoughts on the film and an interview with Nichols about his finest achievement to date. “Mud” opens in limited release April 26.
