Free State of Jones

Free State of Jones

Matthew McConaughey is someone who I never associate with being a leading man. It may just be his name. It just doesn’t sound right. Yes I do know that he has been in quite a few films as the leading man. Dallas Buyers Club being probably the most famous.

This time he’s playing someone who existed in real life about a period in his life. How true I don’t know and can’t be bothered to find out!

We do have a trailer for you and it does look a great story from the American Civil War. That and a nice set of images below that.

Free State of Jones is an epic drama set during the American Civil War and tells the story of defiant Southern farmer, Newt Knight, and his extraordinary rebellion against the Confederate States Army. Bringing together an unlikely band of poor white farmers and runaway slaves, Knight launched an uprising that led Jones County, Mississippi, to secede from the Confederacy, creating a Free State of Jones.
