Charlotte Bless is a busty, blonde, middle-aged woman who enchants most men she meets with her looks and sexual appeal. She has fallen emphatically in love with Hillary Van Wetter, an inmate on death row accused of murdering a sheriff with whom she is regularly in correspondence with, and plans to marry him once she finds a way of getting him released. She enlists the help of two newspaper reporters to investigate the circumstances surrounding the crime and to gather evidence to prove his innocence. One of their main objections is that the judge who sentenced Wetter did not see the evidence that was presented before him in court. Whilst Charlotte is convinced that Wetter is not a bad person, young Jack Jansen is equally convinced that she doesn't really love Wetter and becomes deeply infatuated with her.
This gripping thriller has been adapted to the screen from the 1995 novel of the same name by the award-winning American author Pete Dexter. Directing the movie and co-writing the screenplay is the Oscar nominated Lee Daniels ('Precious', 'Shadowboxer'). 'The Paperboy' has a seriously exhilarating plot full of unexpected twists and turns. With a star-studded cast of Hollywood's finest, it's certainly not one to miss as it hits screens next year (2013).
