Set in Mississippi in the 1930s and 40s Mudbound tells the stories of two families struggling to live off their neighboring farms. While the McAllans, newly moved to the area, grapple with the poverty of the land, the Jacksons – an African American family – have toiled here for years all too aware of the history of slavery and inherent racism in the community. Living cordially side by side, the return of the younger Jamie McAllan and Ronsel Jackson from World War Two forces the two families unwittingly together as the two veterans bond over shared experiences abroad. Their regular hang-outs don’t go unnoticed by Jamie’s chilling, racist father, as the film builds to a tense conclusion. Borrowing many storytelling techniques from its source novel, Mudbound is an important polemic about deep-seated racism in America’s history that sadly still rings true today.
