In the film, a directionless young man helps his reporter brother investigate the possible wrongful conviction of a man on death row, and in the process, falls for the woman whom the convict has been romancing through prison correspondence.

The gritty drama has a surprisingly amount of 70s groove to it from the Oscar-nominated director, complete with a soul soundtrack and the always awesome split-screen. The Paperboy competed for the Palme d’Or at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival.

The Paperboy is set for release in the US on 5 October 2012. It does not currently have an Australian release date.
