The Mule (15)

Wednesday 27 Feb 2019, 11:00

Mystery drama thriller, directed by and starring Clint Eastwood, based on a true story of a 90 year-old drug mule.

Broke, alone and facing foreclosure on his business, 90-year-old horticulturist Earl Stone (Clint Eastwood) takes a job as a drug courier for a Mexican cartel. His immediate success leads to easy money and a larger shipment that soon draws the attention of hard-charging DEA agent Colin Bates. When Earl's past mistakes start to weigh heavily on his conscience, he must decide whether to right those wrongs before law enforcement and cartel thugs catch up to him.

The screenplay, by Nick Schenk, is based on The New York Times article "The Sinaloa Cartel's 90-Year-Old Drug Mule" by Sam Dolnick, which recounts the true story of Leo Sharp, a World War II veteran in his 80s who became a drug courier for the Sinaloa Cartel.

Director: Clint Eastwood
