American drama starring Matthew McConaughey and Reese Witherspoon.
With nothing else to do for the summer, Ellis (Tye Sheridan) and Neckbone (Jacob Lofland) take to exploring the banks of the Mississippi where they find a boat nestled in a tree.
As they begin making plans to use the boat, they quickly realise that someone is living in it and it isn't long before they're introduced to its owner, Mud (McConaughey).
A relationship forms between the three and Mud promises to let the boys have the vessel if they continue bringing him food and help him reunite with his lost love, Juniper (Witherspoon).
But when they agree to help, they soon realise that Mud is a wanted man and that a gang of bounty hunters are in hot pursuit...
