Mary J. Blige delivers a standout performance in Dee Rees’ “Mudbound,” and the nine-time Grammy winner is set to be recognized for her supporting role in the Southern epic. Blige will receive the Breakthrough Performance Award at the 2018 Palm Springs International Film Festival (Psiff), a press release has announced.
“Mudbound” follows two men as they return home to Mississippi from WWII: Ronsel (Jason Mitchell) and Jamie (Garrett Hedlund). The former is black and the latter is white, and while they bond over their shared experiences abroad, they are welcomed back to very different circumstances in the United States. Blige is unrecognizable in her role as Florence, Ronsel’s mother.
Previous recipients of the Breakthrough Performance Award include Brie Larson, Lupita Nyong’o, and Jennifer Hudson.
