Storyline

In the aftermath of WWII, somewhere in the muddy Mississippi Delta, two families--one black, the Jacksons, and the other white, the McAllans--are forced to share the same patch of land, keeping a frail race-based peace with each other. However, as they both struggle with hardship and dire poverty, the long-awaited return of two war veterans--Ronsel, the Jacksons' eldest son, and Jamie, Henry McAllan's younger brother--will unexpectedly nurture a budding friendship that transcends prejudice and race. But, in the end, against a backdrop of fevered Mississippi sunsets and vitriolic racism, life can be hard when the law of the land is still segregation and hatred. And then, no one can be safe.

Trivia

Mudbound became the first non-documentary feature film distributed primarily by a streaming service (Netflix) to be nominated in major categories at the Academy Awards or any category for that matter. This feat challenges the Academy's years long bias against the non-theatrical distribution model of Netflix and other streaming platforms. See more »

Goofs

When Jamie comes home from the war, a package of Lucky Strike "Green" is visible on the table. Lucky's packaging was switched to white in 1942; even in the middle of nowhere, there's no way a three-year-old package of cigarettes would not have been consumed, especially with rationing. See more »

This FIlm is engrossing, endearing, enveloping, and enthralling...
15 September 2017 | by ArthurMausserSee all my reviews

I WikiFLix Sneakpeaked this one. The acting is superb. The Cinematography is crisp, gritty and very believable. It is refreshing to have a movie entertain you WITHOUT over the top action & coffee shop contrived dialogue. The story line unfolds in a way that keeps you captivated with nostalgia and wonder of what will happen next. This will definitely be nominated for an Oscar. It could be the first Best Picture win for Netflix! Garrett Hedlund & Dee Rees will have a great chance of winning awards as well. I would like to go into further detail about the movie but will refrain from spoiling anything. All I can say is that this 20th Century drama captures the normal events in the Deep South to perfection. You are going to want to have food & drink near you couch to avoid having to hit the pause button...
