About the Movie

MEAN DREAMS follows courageous local farm boy Jonas (Josh Wiggins) and the new girl next door, Casey (Sophie Nélisse), as they embark on a journey that will change their lives forever. When Casey’s abusive home life reaches a breaking point, Jonas takes the lead in their escape by stealing a bag full of drug money from Casey’s corrupt father, Officer Wayne Caraway (Golden Globe-nominee Bill Paxton). With the stolen cash, Casey flees with Jonas under relentless pursuit from her father. As they learn the hard truth of what it will take in order to survive, Casey and Jonas are forced to make a life-altering choice from which there will be no turning back.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Nathan Morlando's "Mean Dreams" may use a time-honored premise - young lovers on the lam (see: "Badlands") - but it does so with such quiet, gently appealing assurance that it makes the template seem fresh again. – Andy Webster, New York Times, Mar 16, 2017

Rotten: The shadow of 'Badlands' falls a little too long over Nathan Morlando's initially promising but fatally derivative teens-on-the-run thriller. – Guy Lodge, Variety, May 15, 2016

Fresh: A beautiful, dangerous picture of rural America with echoes of Terrence Malick. – Kimber Myers, Los Angeles Times, Mar 16, 2017

Fresh: Worth recommending entirely on its own merits. – Luke Y. Thompson, Village Voice, Mar 15, 2017

We enjoyed this one a lot

It did a good job of building tension and Bill Paxton was about the best I've ever seen him. It's a little predictable, but I prefer that to going way the heck outta the way to avoid that kind of complaint. I love the scene where Paxton's character lights up a smoke while pumping gas. Lol. Good fun.

Loved It

One of Bill's best movies (all time favorite of his is Simple Plan). So sad to know that we won't be seeing anymore new movies from him since he passed away this year. RIP.

Fabulous movie

Bill Paxton was a great actor (A Simple Plan), I think very underrated as an actor.
