Mudbound

Adam Cook

Tackling a number of issues without being about any one thing, Mudbound examines themes of class, race, war, and alcoholism that add up to more than the sum of their parts, becoming a portrait of the messiness of our individual points-of-view—how they make us human but also how they can tear us apart.

Review

The poverty on the farm is visceral. No matter what stations in life these characters hold, they are painted in mud, and no amount of money can save them from it.
