Free State of Jones (2016) description:
The Free State of Jones – a long-awaited premiere of the year! The plot tells the biographical picture about the Civil War, which took place in the United States. The story takes place after the events that occurred during the time of the Battle of Corinth, Newton Knight. The film is punctuated by simple impoverished farmer from Mississippi, who led a group of people, deserters from the Confederate army who desperately advocated the abolition of slavery. Gathered together they may build in Jones County. It is in this place, and launched a massive war against the Confederacy. Gary Ross took a picture of a really worthwhile and tried to capture the spirit of the war itself, which is really going on. Violence, cruelty, and the belief in victory – that’s what drove the soldiers at the time. And with such a terrific actor Matthew McConaughey, Gugu Embata-Ro and Ali Mahershala spectacle turned unforgettable.
