Movie Info

Laura McAllan is trying to raise her children on her husband's Mississippi Delta farm, a place she finds foreign and frightening. In the midst of the family's struggles, two young men return from the war to work the land. Jamie McAllan, Laura's brother-in-law, is everything her husband is not - charming and handsome, but he is haunted by his memories of combat. Ronsel Jackson, eldest son of the black sharecroppers who live on the McAllan farm, now battles the prejudice in the Jim Crow South.

Audience Reviews for Mudbound

  • Mar 18, 2019
    Well-acted and moving story, despite the typical Hollywood clichà (C)s.

    Despite lacking in enough intensity and the fact that all female characters only seem to be spectators of what happens around them, this is a haunting film that exposes a depressing moment in American history when slavery was in many ways perpetuated long after it was over.

    This is an example of a great Netflix film. With a superb cast, this tells about racial American division in the World-War II era. It is both emotive and heartfelt whilst also being bitterly tragic.

    There is some really outstanding acting basically by the entire cast in this racism drama about the bond between a white farmers family and their black worker neighbors. Things never get too sentimental, but rather realistic, keeping a subtle approach to the themes up until the horrible climax of the film. Even after that it doesn't lose its glimpse of hope. A moving and touching film that has some important points to make, even about today.
