CHECK OUT: New Character Posters for Cast of ‘Mudbound’

Ahead of next week’s release of “Mudbound,” there are new character posters to enjoy.

While not revealing anything particular about any of the characters, the posters are a good look at the gritty nature of the film, with just a glimpse into each individual personality.

The official synopsis for “Mudbound” reads:

“‘Mudbound’ follows the McAllan family, newly transplanted from the quiet civility of Memphis and unprepared for the harsh demands of farming. Despite the grandiose dreams of Henry (Jason Clarke), his wife Laura (Carey Mulligan) struggles to keep the faith in her husband’s losing venture. Meanwhile, Hap and Florence Jackson (Rob Morgan, Mary J. Blige) – sharecroppers who have worked the land for generations – struggle bravely to build a small dream of their own despite the rigidly enforced social barriers they face.

“The war upends both families’ plans as their returning loved ones, Jamie McAllan (Garrett Hedlund) and Ronsel Jackson (Jason Mitchell), forge a fast but uneasy friendship that challenges the brutal realities of the Jim Crow South in which they live.”

The film was directed by Dee Rees, and co-written by Rees and Virgil Williams. It is based on the best-selling novel by Hillary Jordan.

“Mudbound” will be in select theaters and on Netflix Friday, November 17.
