2017, Netflix, 134 min, USA, Dir: Dee Rees

Two Mississippi families -- one black, one white -- confront the brutal realities of prejudice, farming and friendship during the 1940s in this acclaimed drama based on the Hillary Jordan novel. Garrett Hedlund, Jason Mitchell, Carey Mulligan, Jason Clarke and Mary J. Blige lead an outstanding ensemble cast. Nominated for four Oscars, including Best Supporting Actress (Blige), Best Adapted Screenplay (Virgil Williams and Dee Rees) and Best Cinematography (Rachel Morrison).
