War transcends race in the first trailer for Netflix drama Mudbound

Matt Sayer 7 September 2017 NEWS


War leaves a lasting impact in this haunting Netflix original film.

Netflix has announced its latest original film with a stirring new trailer exploring the racial divide in the aftermath of WWII.

Set in mid-1900s Mississippi, Mudbound follows two soldiers as they attempt to move on from the war and return to their regular lives. Echoes of the conflict don't fade so easily, though, and the two men turn to each other to help survive in a world that doesn't understand them.

However, mid-century America doesn't take too kindly to mixed-race friendships, and the pair find themselves ostracised by their respective communities. What follows is a challenging tale of racial tensions and post-war trauma directed by Dee Rees, the mind behind the 2011 drama Pariah.

Mudbound hits Netflix on 17 November.

In other Netflix news, the Italian organised crime drama Suburra received its first trailer, and the true story of El Chapo's infamous interview will be told in The Day I Met El Chapo.
