Rated 96% on Rotten Tomatoes
Directed by Dee Rees, MUDBOUND is set in the post-World War II South. It is an epic story of two families pitted against one another by a ruthless social hierarchy, yet bound together by the shared farmland of the Mississippi Delta.
“Rees isn’t content simply to diagnose a punishing, self-perpetuating cycle: This is a film buoyed by humanism that feels chastening, liberating and healing, all at the same time.” – Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
“A hymn to what we all share – the human struggle, the mutual desire to succeed and create a better world for our children – and it is a damning indictment of those who stand in the way of such progress.” – Peter Debruge, Variety
“Dee Rees’s story of one black and one white family struggling in the WW II-era South is a fiercely intimate epic that couldn’t be more timely. Mary J. Blige should be on every Oscar list for best supporting actress.”– Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
Rated R (for some disturbing violence, brief language and nudity)
