The Jim Crow Laws of America are a terrible stain on the country’s history. The lack of social parity between whites and blacks is something many would rather forget happened, and others want us to remember it to prevent anything like it happening again. But that’s not what we’re here to discuss.
Mudbound is set within this time period and focusses on the lives of both a black and white family as they find themselves drawn together during a turbulent time.
With stars such as Carey Mulligan and Mary J. Blige appearing in this film, and the direction of Dee Rees, there looks to be a powerful message lying nestled within the story.
Mudbound is out on Netflix November 17th!
