Screen Play: October’s Must-See Movies

13 films to take Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater to see

The Paperboy

It’s summer 1969 in South Florida, and a reporter’s investigating an inmate’s wrongdoings, while his younger bro’s probing a sexed-up Barbie doll. You might need a bath after Lee Daniels’s steamy film noir so scuzzy you can feel the chiggers and smell the stank. Even with the filth caked on thick, the cast — including Matthew McConaughey, John Cusack, Zac Efron, and Nicole Kidman — shines.
It’s like: A Time to Kill meets To Die For.
Take: Swamp people.
