Friday 26 July 2013
“That blonde lady peed all over your face,” maintains Macy Gray's maid to Zac Efron's horny teen, Jack, in this lurid crime drama. The lady is Nicole Kidman's trailer trash Charlotte who lusts after John Cusack's vile death row inmate. Feral Charlotte is grimly determined to quash his conviction, as is Matthew McConaughey's Miami Times reporter. Kidman captivates in this droll and savage adaptation of Pete Dexter's 1995 novel, set in 1960s Florida.
