The Mule is a 2018 crime and drama film directed by Clint Eastwood. He also stars in the film alongside Bradley Cooper, who has appeared in some of his other films such as American Sniper (2014). Clint Eastwood is really the face of this film, given his legacy in the film industry.
Eastwood plays Earl Stone, a 90-year-old World War II veteran who has neglected his family in the past. In 2001, he was thriving as a well respected horticulturist and gardener. He even won awards for his floral arrangements, and dedication to the preservation of day lilies. Perhaps the most significant of these instances of him putting work over family is when he accidentally misses his daughter’s wedding. This essentially destroys their relationship, and leads to a divorce with his wife, Mary. In an attempt to reconcile, he ends up making matters worse.
