Sibling rivalry: Zac and Matthew McConaughey star as brothers in the ‘explosive sexual thriller’, due out later this year
While Jack’s older brother, Ward, reports for the Miami Times, Jack has settled for a job delivering papers for the Tribune. [ Hit the link for a photo or Efron holding some bundled newspapers. Like I’m including that photo over Nicole Kidman! ]
But when Ward and his partner, evil dandy Yardley Acheman, come to Moat County to investigate the four-year-old murder of the local sheriff, Jack assists them in the inquiry.
Nicole, meanwhile, stars as Charlotte Bless in the movie – a woman who writes letters to death row inmates amd who is having a correspondence with the murder suspect, played by John Cuscack.
The movie is based on the novel by Peter Dexter, who wrote the screenplay for Mulholland Falls.
