Deets: Free State of Jones is a riveting Civil War drama based on a little known true story of a mixed-race insurgency that fought against the Confederacy. Written and directed by four-time Oscar nominee Gary Ross (The Hunger Games, Seabiscuit, Pleasantville), and starring Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey (Dallas Buyers Club), Mahershala Ali (House of Cards) and Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Concussion, Belle), Free State of Jones challenges our understanding of the Civil War-era fight for freedom — where former slaves and small farmers banded together in the quest for economic and racial freedom and equality.

Spotted: Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Mahershala Ali, Kerrry Cahill, Bill Tangradi, Sherrilyn Hill, Gary Ross
