Matthew McConaughey’s biography is “Allright, Allright, Allright!”
Matthew McConaughey is well known for several romantic comedies as well as a leading actor in multiple dramatic films. He even won best actor for his work in Dallas Buyers Club. But who is he? How did he get his start? What makes him tick and how did he get from here he was to where he is now? In other words, how did he find his Greenlights to show him when to hit the gas and not the brake?
I’ll admit that I really didn’t know much about Matthew McConaughey before I read this book. I had some preconceived notions of who he is, but I really had no idea. I didn’t know he was a writer, straight A student, foreign exchange student, etc. etc. I knew he hailed from Texas, but not where he got his start. Needless to say, it was interesting to learn more about him. I enjoyed getting to find out his version of himself. I’ve seen several of his films and it is easy to put him in a certain category, but when it comes down to it, he’s not really that different from any of us. That’s what is so great about memoirs, you really find out their true character.
This is quite a bit of harsh language throughout the book as well as some implied sexual activity, nothing overly graphic. I recommend this book for mature audiences that have an interest in McConaughey or enjoy personal biographies/memoirs.
