Were critics wrong to boo The Paperboy? Cannes The Paperboy, review.
Cannes from another angle. Efron plays Jack Jansen, a sculpted college dropout living at home in a suburban Florida backwater.
But then Jack meets Charlotte, and the sun comes out, and the colours intensify, and the cicadas in the trees scream with redoubled vigour. Better still, the film has a ball with it.
Take the outrageous prison sequence, in which Kidman drives Cusack to orgasm with a lewd dumb show from the other side of the meeting room — or the intimate moments Daniels intercuts with shots of pigs truffling through filth and alligators lurking in the bayou. Shyness and squeamishness are repeatedly punished. In an already infamous vignette, a flustered Jack runs into the sea for a cooling swim — only to be lashed by jellyfish tendrils and then doused with a jet of steaming urine, as Charlotte drags him up the beach, hunkers down and gamely applies the remedy.

As a piece of art this is all lust, no caution; a heady mirage of sex, swamps and soul music that wants nothing more than for you to share in the joke. Thank goodness I finally got it. Follow Telegraph Film on Twitter.
