We told you back in June Harmony Korine‘s The Beach Bum had gotten a UK distributor. Three months on Blue Finch Films have confirms the UK film release date, 25th October.
It’s no secret here at The Peoples Movies we’re split on Harmony Korine. From Gummo, Trash Humpers to Springbreakers all completely different all with tradmark Korine’s unique brand of arthouse provocation.
His latest is no different. A stoner comedy with Matthew McConaughey as Moondog in a wildly original and subversive film that follows the outrageous misadventures. A rebellious burnout who only knows how to live life by his own rules.
This has been described as the spiritual sequel to Springbreakers. After the positive reviews from it’s Film Festival run, UK and Irish cinefiles can soon find out if the film is worth the critical appraise. Check out the American Trailer…
The Beach Bum follows the outrageous misadventures of Moondog (Matthew McConaughey), a rebellious weed-smoking, beer-chugging burnout who lives life by his own rules in the Sunshine State. If Moondog can put down the bong and brews for one minute, he might just be able to put his poetic talent to good use and write the next great American novel. But with a rag-tag bunch of friends including R&B singer Lingerie (Snoop Dogg) and pyromaniac ex-addict Flicker (Zac Efron) plus some wild, neon-soaked parties, perhaps Moondog is doomed to a life of slumming it on the sandy beaches of Florida…
Complete with an all-star cast including Snoop Dogg (Starsky and Hutch), Isla Fisher (Nocturnal Animals), Zac Efron (Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile), Martin Lawrence (Bad Boys), Jonah Hill (The Wolf of Wall Street) and music legend Jimmy Buffett, The Beach Bum is a wildly original and subversive new comedy from the enfant terrible of American independent cinema Harmony Korine.
The Beach Bum in select UK and Irish cinemas from 25 October, then on digital download 30 October.Powered by Sidelines
