MUDBOUND - A Timeless and Sweeping American Epic from Director Dee Rees

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.

A powerful ensemble cast including Carey Mulligan, Garrett Hedlund, Jason Mitchell, Jason Clarke, Jonathan Banks, Mary J. Blige and Rob Morgan portray the richly nuanced relationships between the McAllans and the Jacksons.

Rees commands a team of top craftspeople including a remarkable roster of female department heads - including cinematographer Rachel Morrison, editor Mako Kamitsuna, composer Tamar-kali, Oscar(R) nominee sound engineer Pud Cusack and makeup department head Angie Wells - to bring the past into the present and shine a light on a chapter of American history rarely seen on screen before.

Watch the official trailer here, and discover what everyone's been talking about.

Mudbound will be on Netflix and in select theaters on Friday, November 17.

________________________________________

Set in the rural American South during World War II, Dee Rees' Mudbound 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.

Mudbound follows the McAllan family, newly transplanted from the quiet civility of Memphis and unprepared for the harsh demands of farming. Despite the grandiose dreams of Henry (Jason Clarke), his wife Laura (Carey Mulligan) struggles to keep the faith in her husband's losing venture. Meanwhile, Hap and Florence Jackson (Rob Morgan, Mary J. Blige) - sharecroppers who have worked the land for generations - struggle bravely to build a small dream of their own despite the rigidly enforced social barriers they face.

The war upends both families' plans as their returning loved ones, Jamie McAllan (Garrett Hedlund) and Ronsel Jackson (Jason Mitchell), forge a fast but uneasy friendship that challenges the brutal realities of the Jim Crow South in which they live.

MUDBOUND is written for the screen by Virgil Williams and Dee Rees and directed by Rees. Based on the international bestseller by Hillary Jordan.
