Highly Suspect Reviews: Mudbound

Rural Mississippi. The late 40s. Racism. Mud. Poverty. PTSD. That’s what you’re in for with this Netflix-produced, Dee Rees-directed adaptation of the novel by Hillary Jordan. Garrett Hedlund and Jason Mitchell are two young men back from WWII, each confronting the abject poverty of their homes (and rampant racism) in different ways but having a friendship based on their shared soldiering experiences. Casey Mulligan is Jason Clarke’s wife who was expecting something WAY different when she was told they were packing up the whole family and moving to a farm. Rob Morgan and Mary J Blige are working for Clarke and are figuring out that trying to get ahead in this scenario is a losing proposition. And Chris, Marco, and Mike are the HSR critics who don’t really see eye-to-eye on this film. Check out their review here.
