Watch this exclusive clip from Dee Rees' Oscar contender, 'Mudbound'

(Shadow & Act Exclusive): Here is an exclusive clip from Dee Rees’ critically-acclaimed, upcoming film, Mudbound. 

It hits Netflix and select theaters on November 17.

A big-screen adaptation of Hillary Jordan’s 2009 novel of the same name, which is set in 1946 in the wake of World War II, the story follows the fates of two very different families that collide while struggling to make their dreams come true in the Mississippi Delta. When two celebrated soldiers return home, their unlikely friendship complicates the already fraught relationship between the families.

Set in the post–World War II South, the story follows two families who are pitted against a barbaric social hierarchy and an unrelenting landscape as they simultaneously fight the battle at home and the battle abroad. This epic pioneer story is about friendship, heritage and the unending struggle for and against the land.

The film stars Carey Mulligan, Jason Mitchell, Rob Morgan, Mary J. Blige, Jason Clarke, Garrett Hedlund and Jonathan Banks.

Its Sundance premiere was met with heavy praise from critics and audiences alike, with some already considering it as a potential Oscar contender for 2018.

The below clip, debuting exclusively on Shadow and Act, features the characters of Jamie McAllan (Hedlund) and Ronsel Jackson (Mitchell).

After their traumatic experience as pilots during World War II, the two young men find solace in their joint battle with post-traumatic stress. This encounter sparks the beginning of their friendship that is continuously tested by racism and violence in Post-War America.
