The Mule24th January, 2019
Based on a remarkable true story, the hugely enjoyable new drama from Academy Award-winning director Clint Eastwood (Million Dollar Baby, Mystic River, Unforgiven), manages to be both thrilling yet poignantly elegant in the way only Eastwood can manage. Broke, disowned from his family and facing foreclosure on his business, Earl Stone (Eastwood) takes a job as a drug courier for a Mexican cartel. His immediate success leads to easy money which he uses to reconnect with his daughter and ex-wife, but a larger shipment soon draws the attention of hard-charging DEA agent Colin Bates (Bradley Cooper). When Earl’s past mistakes to his family start to weigh heavily on his conscience, he must decide whether to right those wrongs before law enforcement and cartel thugs catch up to him.
