The Mule is the latest in Clint Eastwood’s expansive resume of directorial work, and the first film he’s starred in since 2008’s Gran Torino.
Inspired by an article in The New York Times article, the film follows down-on-his-luck, 90-year-old Earl Stone (Eastwood), who becomes a drug mule for a Mexican cartel in order to earn some extra cash. One of the most impressive aspects of this engaging, character-driven drama is just how competent and adaptive Earl is to his changing situation – keeping his cool and finding a way to continue at such a ripe age. In a sense, it’s analogous to Eastwood’s career.
