Mudbound (2017)

US 134m, Colour
Director: Dee Rees; Cast: Carey Mulligan, Jason Clarke, Jason Mitchell, Mary J. Blige, Rob Morgan, Jonathan Banks, Garrett Hedlund

Mudbound is the struggle of a pair WWII veterans suffering from post traumatic stress disorder who become unlikely friends upon their return to rural Mississippi. A deeply moving film that is filled with sorrow and pain, Mudbound is a distressing story of racism in 20thC America. The film’s use of multiple lines of narration provides parallel views of the shared experiences of a number of the film’s characters. While this is an interesting approach, there is an excess of exposition that is somewhat distracting, though the various viewpoints do eventually converge in the final act (Klaus Ming January 2018).
