'Mudbound' (Nov. 17th)

Director Dee Rees (Pariah) has crafted an extraordinary tale of racial disparity in the Mississippi Delta farm country before and after World War II. The story contrasts the intertwined lives of a white couple, the McAllans (Carey Mulligan and Jason Clarke), with a family of black sharecroppers led by Mary J. Blige, Rob Morgan and Straight Outta Compton's Jason Mitchell. Rees handles the complex material with finesse and fire (she's a consummate artist), especially the PTSD that afflicts soldiers on both sides of the color line. Mitchell is superb and R&B queen Blige is magnificent. It's a prodigious feat of filmmaking.
