Writer-director Jeff Nichols’ third feature is screening at Sundance starting tomorrow. The tale which debuted last May at Cannes involves a pair of teenage boys who discover a boat wedged in a tree on an island in the Mississippi River. A drifter played by Matthew McConaughey intrudes and complications ensue. Tye Sheridan and Jacob Lofland play the teens and Reese Witherspoon co-stars as a soulful character named Juniper.
