Week 4: Arkansas (Mud)
“A reminder–don’t get bit.”
–Mud to Neckbone when asked about his tattoo
Three words to describe this film/state: Young Life Lessons
Best ‘Extra’: Older Kid at Food King, played by Tate Smalley
State recipe we tried this week: (We cheated this week and had edamame since Arkansas is one of the top soybean-producing states in the country)
Earring Inspo Character: Juniper
Other Notes: The kids in this film were excellent. We loved the way this film captured the Deep South, from geography to local dialect and mannerisms to the hard living and family life of some of the more rural areas. I learned that the latent threat of cottonmouth snake bites is enough to make me say I could never live that close to a creek or river. Good film and story line.
