The Mule


Korean War veteran Earl Stone (Clint Eastwood) needs money desperately and agrees to become a mule for a Mexican cartel; at the same time, DEA agents are tracking the cartelā€™s movements. A real-life story about a mule in his 90s becomes a perfect vehicle for Eastwood, frail but still sharp and amusing. The character, honest, unafraid, looking to repair mistakes from the past, looks like classic Eastwood. An engaging film, with plenty of tension without turning unnecessarily cruel. Several supporting efforts are worthwhile, including Andy Garcia as a charismatic mob boss.

2018-U.S. 116 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed byĀ Clint Eastwood. Cast: Clint Eastwood (Earl Stone), Bradley Cooper (Colin Bates), Laurence Fishburne (Warren Lewis), Michael PeƱa, Dianne Wiest, Ignacio Serricchioā€¦ Andy Garcia, Alison Eastwood.

Trivia: Co-produced by Eastwood. Inspired by a New York Times article.
