Title: Free State of Jones (2016)
Post by: cigar joe on October 13, 2017, 06:00:25 AM
A Southern, a rebellion during the rebellion, the life of Newton Knight and his armed revolt against the Confederacy in Jones County, Mississippi, while the American Civil War rages. The film was written and directed by Gary Ross. It stars Matthew McConaughey, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Mahershala Ali, and Keri Russell. It's watchable but a bit boring in the long run. If you want an over-the-top un PC decadent entertaining romp through the antebellum South watch Drum instead 6/10

Pretty bad. 4/10.
Endless scenes of people walking or sitting around a campsite,
The dvd documentary on the real events the story was based on, shows that this could have been a really good film.
