Director-actor Clint Eastwood’s “The Mule” is profound and is profoundly Eastwood.
It’s a caustic, cute, crazy story about an elderly man, Earl Stone (Eastwood), down on his luck and money, who gets mixed up with a Mexican drug-running cartel.
The bank has foreclosed on Earl’s greenhouse, where the award-winning horticulturalist meticulously and lovingly raises day-lillies...
Q. I’m sure everyone has gone through this, but it mortified me. What do you do when a young child (loudly) points to someone and says, “That man is fat,” or something equally embarrassing?
