Masterful filmmaker Dee Rees vividly captures the 1940s American South in the film Mudbound, based on the international bestselling novel by Hillary Jordan.
The film, an adaptation co-written by Virgil Williams and Rees, is the timeless and timely story of two families - one black, one white - bound together by the farmland of the Mississippi Delta during the Jim Crow era.
The cast includes Carey Mulligan, Garrett Hedlund, Jason Mitchell, Jason Clarke, Jonathan Banks, Mary J. Blige and Rob Morgan and portrays the richly nuanced relationships between the McAllans and the Jacksons.
Mudbound will be on Netflix on Friday, November 17. Watch the trailer for it now:
