In a small Florida town, a sleezy woman (Nicole Kidman) asks a reporter (Matthew McConaughey) and his young brother (Zac Efron) to help free her boyfriend from prison. Their quest leads them to the swamps where they find life means very little.
This was the most disgusting movie I have seen in a long time. The characters were all low-life scum, the story was ugly and overly-violent, and the dialogue was nonstop profanity. I can't imagine what the stars were thinking when they signed on for this film; surely none of them is bragging about it now.
It could be argued that the movie is a success because it seems quite real, but its view of life as utter garbage isn't entertaining to me.
