Mule, The

From master-filmmaker Clint Eastwood (Unforgiven, Gran Torino) comes an all-star comic drama about an aging divorcee forced into a lucrative life of crime, based on an unbelievable true story. Earl Stone (Eastwood) 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 (Bradley Cooper). And even as his money problems become a thing of the past, Earl’s past mistakes start to weigh heavily on him. Co-starring Michael Pena, Dianne Wiest, Lawrence Fishburn and Andy Garcia.
