Earl Stone, a man in his 80s who is broke, alone, and facing foreclosure of his business when he is offered a job that simply requires him to drive. Easy enough, but, unbeknownst to Earl, he’s just signed on as a drug courier for a Mexican cartel. He does well — so well, in fact, that his cargo increases exponentially, and Earl is assigned a handler. But he isn’t the only one keeping tabs on Earl; the mysterious new drug mule has also hit the radar of hard-charging DEA agent Colin Bates. And even as his money problems become a thing of the past, Earl’s past mistakes start to weigh heavily on him, and it’s uncertain if he’ll have time to right those wrongs before law enforcement, or the cartel’s enforcers, catch up to him.

Top Critics Consensus:
An entertaining enough offbeat crime comedy/drama featuring an amazing cast – led by the grizzled, shuffling, mumbling, wisecracking old dog playing the lead. – Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times

Eastwood probably just knows that Earl’s story is a great one and that he’s just the man to tell it. He happens to be right on both counts. – Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly

Less cranky and inciting than Gran Torino but persuasively expressive in conveying an old man’s regrets along with his desire to improve himself even in late age, The Mule shows that Eastwood’s still got it, both as a director and actor. – Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter

Starring: Clint Eastwood, Bradley Cooper, Laurence Fishburne, Michael Pena, Dianne Wiest

Directed by: Clint Eastwood
