We love newly-minted Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey, and two of our favorite independent movies of his are now available on Netflix Instant Streaming! Mud was one of the most acclaimed movies of 2013 and received a stellar 98% Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. It’s a story about two Mississippi teens who meet a mysterious drifter named Mud hiding on a deserted river island and they get mixed up in his tangled web. It also features Reese Witherspoon and is brand new to Netflix Streaming!
In the 2011 black comedy Bernie, Jack Black “plays the affable Texas mortician Bernie who befriends the small town’s wealthiest widow and then kills her. But despite the suspicious nature of her death, no one wants to think anything but the best of Bernie.” Richard Linklater’s Bernie got “Certified Fresh” on Rotten Tomatoes with a 90% score, and we think you’ll love it, especially Matthew McConaughey’s turn as the local DA Danny “Buck” Davidson.
Alright, alright, alright–watch these great movies tonight!
