"The Paperboy" (2012)
The Plot: "The Paperboy" takes audiences deep into the backwaters of steamy 1960s South Florida, as investigative reporter Ward Jansen (McConaughey) and his partner Yardley Acheman (David Oyelowo) chase a sensational, career-making story. With the help of Ward’s younger brother Jack (Efron) and sultry death-row groupie Charlotte Bless (Kidman), the pair tries to prove violent swamp-dweller Hillary Van Wetter (John Cusack) was framed for the murder of a corrupt local sheriff. Based on the provocative bestselling novel by Pete Dexter, "The Paperboy" peels back a sleepy small town’s decades-old façade of Southern gentility to reveal a quagmire of evil as dark as a Florida bayou.
