Richard Linklater directs Bernie, a darkly comic docudrama playing at Thalian Hall in downtown Wilmington, NC. The film highlights the unusual friendship between an affable Texas mortician and a wealthy but reviled widow, and the shocking crime that followed. When the widow's body is discovered stuffed in her own freezer, local District Attorney Buck Davidson (Matthew McConaughey) vows that justice will be served, even as the locals rally to Bernie’s defense. Jack Black and Shirley MacLaine star.
Running time: 1 hour, 44 minutes. Rated PG-13.
