Lee Daniels stunned the world with the 2009 film Precious, even snagging an Oscar nomination for Best Director. The openly gay 52-year-old is back with The Paperboy, an equally dark tale set in the southern Florida swamps revolving around a reporter (Matthew McConaughey) and his brother’s (Zac Efron) quest to prove the innocence of a convicted cop killer (John Cusack) who marries a nymphomaniac obsessed with criminals (Nicole Kidman). Sounds wild? Yes, it is. And Daniels’ comments when we talked recently about the film, his superstar cast, and gay people being “third-class citizens” are just as untamed.
