The Courthouse kick off their Autumn film season with another great film by Clint Eastwood, The Mule
Based on a true story of a WW2 veteran who became a drug courier for the Sinaloa Cartel in his 80’s, Clint Eastwood stars as Earl Stone, a man in his 80s who is broke, alone, and facing foreclosure of his business. He is offered a job that simply requires him to drive, 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. And even as his money problems become a thing of the past, Earl’s past mistakes start to weigh heavily on him, and it’s uncertain if he’ll have time to right those wrongs before law enforcement, or the cartel’s enforcers, catch up to him.
