THE MULE
(R) 116min

Clint Eastwood stars in and directs this (his 37th) film, a moving and offbeat dramady based on a true story. Earl Stone, an elderly day-lily breeder who has lost his business and home to foreclosure, is offered a job where he simply has to drive. He takes the job but doesn’t realize he’s become an unlikely drug courier for a powerful Mexican cartel. His success solves his own financial problems, and those of his neighbor’s through his generosity, but puts him on the radar of the DEA. Meanwhile, his past mistakes with his family start to weigh on him, but he might not have time to right them before either the cops or the cartel’s enforcers catch up to him.
