In steamy 1960s Florida, reporter Ward Jansen and his partner Yardley chase a career-making story. With the help of Ward’s brother Jack and sultry death-row groupie Charlotte Bless, the pair tries to prove violent swamp-dweller Hillary Van Wetter was framed for the murder of a corrupt local sheriff.
A Palme d’Or nominee by the acclaimed Lee Daniels (Precious), Paperboy is a sugar-coated neo-noir centered on the fiancée of a man on death row. Fired up by a stellar cast (including Nicole Kidman’s stand-out performance), this pulpy crime story set in the 1960s Florida ripples with campy excess.
