Matthew McConaughey: Best Supporting Actor!Special Engagements Archive

Bernie

Buy Tickets

Double Feature with KILLER JOE.

(2011) dir Richard Linklater w/Jack Black, Shirley MacLaine, Matthew McConaughey [104 min]
Another surprising film from last year, BERNIE is a low-key, black comedy based on a true story. Director Linklater pulls an uncharacteristically mellow performance out of Black in the title role: a small-town Texas mortician who befriends (and eventually is accused of the murder of) the town’s resident cranky old lady (MacLaine). Again, McConaughey stands out as the town’s colorful D.A. who can’t believe in Bernie’s innocence.
