22 ISSUE 105 / 2017 FILM Dee Rees directs the story of two families living in rural Mississippi, both dealing with PTSD and racism in their own way. This 2-hour and 10 minutes movie focuses on two men returning home, Ronsel is part of a black family who have their own land, and starts a relationship with a white German girl. The other is Jamie, the white brother of an entrepreneur called Henry. Henry has married Laura, a young girl who decided to accept his proposal because she was scared of ending up alone. All the characters in Mudbound are presented through their weaknesses and sufferings; the rare glimpses of hope we are shown lie in the unexpected human connection between Ronsel and Henry.A relationship that goes beyond their race but ends up creating huge complications. The story explores several social themes in a graceful and meaningful way, but Rees leaves one of the more intense moments at the end of the film. Extraordinary cinematography is paired with outstanding interpretations and the stellar performance by Mary J. Blige (that you will have difficulties to recognize) is already giving her awards attention. The rest of the cast is no less inspiring. Carey Mulligan as always shines in her role as Laura. MUDBOUND – A POIGNANT AND INCREDIBLY REAL STORY! In a difficult worldwide political situation, Mudbound is one of the most relevant movies of 2017.
