In the Mississippi Delta of the 1940s, two farming families - one of white landholders, one of Black tenant farmers - are bound by the unforgiving soil they share as they struggle to survive amid the upheavals of World War II and the poisonous hatred of the Jim Crow South. Each family sends a young man off to battle; when they return home, scarred, and find a common bond, the community is ripped apart. Writer-director Dee Rees, with cowriter Virgil Williams, crafts a uniquely American tragedy, imbuing bitter historical realities with a timeless weight. Featuring bone-deep performances from Rees’s ensemble cast - including Carey Mulligan, Mary J. Blige, Jason Mitchell, Rob Morgan, Garrett Hedlund, Jason Clarke, and Jonathan Banks - and backed by Rachel Morrison’s darkly burnished cinematography, Mudbound is a searing humanist study of inheritance, based upon Hillary Jordan’s novel.

English A really exemplary drama from the American countryside at the end of the Second World War, containing absolutely everything that the American history should not be proud of at all. Stupid and arrogant rednecks, racists, black people and Ku Klux Klan that is connected to all of that and appears in the film just by the way. In my opinion, the creators have showed us one strong family story from the local plantations, which had everything. And as the creators were not biased, the main characters have led a really hard life considering their neighborhood, which I would never want to be a part of. A human filth that is really hard to watch, as there is nothing nice about it. On the other hand, I wasn’t bored, and the characters portrayed by Garrett Hedlund, Carey Mulligan and Jason Clark all had their charm. ()

English An honest, grounded drama from 1940s USA where, in addition to the war, racial intolerance and the "serfdom" syndrome still reverberate. There are several major themes outlined and the main characters undergo several major interactions and decisions resulting from them. It's interesting that despite having quite decent Oscar ambitions, both thematically and directorially at first impression, it doesn't knock on the door of academics in the style of "we're making an urgent theme, give us awards", as some other filmmakers are wont to do. But apparently the first half and the sweeter finale decided that the sensation wasn't going to happen. It's understandable, as cutting 20-30 minutes of dialogue at the beginning would bump it up a star; it wouldn't have broken the bonds of the main characters and a brisker pace would have helped, too. The character of the father (Jonathan Banks) is extremely similar in his totally evil and insidious nature to the father figure in Monster's Ball, the decline of the human spirit and common sense. A sensationally effective and reliable means of evoking negative emotions. ()

English Drama about what America should not be proud of. Although the story takes place over seventy years ago, it still shows the ongoing problems that America continues to have and does not address. It is probably easier to solve external problems that it creates itself rather than its own. A great, powerful drama with excellently chosen actors. ()
