A film starring Nicole Kidman, Zac Efron, Matthew McConaughey, Macy Gray, and John Cusack may sound like a packaged star vehicle of some sort, but apparently it’s not. It’s Lee Daniels’ follow-up to his 2009 Oscar-favorite Precious and it has divided audiences with wild supporters and vocal dissenters at festivals since debuting in Cannes. The Paperboy will be hitting theaters after its NY Film Festival debut this week and the rest will be box office history.
Directed by Lee Daniels (Precious), The Paperboy is a sexually-charged tale of desire, ambition, prejudice and crime set in the 1960s swamplands of South Florida. It’s based on a true story and it looks, hot, sweaty and dangerous. Nicole gets so downand dirty in the role, we even hear that at some point she urinates on Zac Efron’s character?? Interested now?
