The Mule (2014)

Black comedy from Australia, based on the true story of a magnificently inept drug mule who loses his cool and gets caught out by law enforcement with a lethal amount of narcotics in his stomach. Stars Hugo Weaving and Angus Sampson (Insidious) - who also co-writes and co-directs. Leigh Whannell, co-writer and co-star of the original Saw, also co-writes and co-stars.

"It's 1983. A naive man with lethal narcotics hidden in his stomach is detained by Australian Federal Police. Alone and afraid, ‘the Mule’ makes a desperate choice; to defy his bodily functions and withhold the evidence... literally. And by doing so becomes a 'human time-bomb'; dragging cops, criminals and concerned family into his impossible escapade." (SXSW)

Somewhat more eventful than a film about self-inflicted constipation promises to be.
