The Paperboy Movie Quotes

"The Paperboy" movie quotes narrate a dark drama film that follows a newspaper writer tasked with exonerating a South Florida man accused on killing a sheriff. The film noir, directed by "Precious" mastermind Lee Davis, is based on a Pete Dexter novel of the same name and earned praise when it first debuted at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival.

In "The Paperboy," Nicole Kidman plays Charlotte Bless, a sultry blonde who seeks out staff from the Miami Times to help her prove that her fiance, violent swamp-dweller Hillary Van Wetter (John Cusack), was framed for the murder of a sheriff. With evidence in hand, Charlotte arrives on the home of Ward and Jack Jansen (Matthew McConaughey and Zac Efron, respectively) with the hopes that Ward, an investigative journalist, Jack, a paperboy, and Yardley (David Oyelowo) Ward's associate, can help her free Hillary from prison.

As Ward and Yardley dive into the case by reviewing the evidence and testimony and talking with Hillary, Jack on the other hand falls into love with Charlotte. But as the group becomes closer to one another, viewers are left wondering if Charlotte's seduction of Jack was for other reasons than just help with Hillary's legal troubles.

Opening in limited release in October 5, 2012, "The Paperboy" joins the early fall 2012 movie season which also includes titles such as "End of Watch, "Dredd 3D," "Lawless," "Resident Evil: Retribution," "The Perks of Being a Wallflower," "Trouble with the Curve," "The Master," "The Words," and "The Inbetweeners."

    Jack: "This here is Miss Charlotte Bless."
    Charlotte: "Oh, not for long. Hillary and I are engaged to be married. Everything you need to know about Hillary Van Wetter that's been in the papers is here in these boxes. Now and our exciting correspondences is in the bottom box. I really just want to thank you for helping me get Hillary out of that hell hole."
    Ward: "Well I wouldn't go booking that honeymoon just yet."
    Charlotte: "Oh"
    Ward: "But we are going to fight his sentence in the way it came about."

    Upon delivering the Jansens boxes of evidence to help get her beloved Hillary out of prison, Charlotte expects the process to be quick and painless. Though Ward vows to get to the bottom of the case, he reminds her that it is not that simple.
