Free State of Jones

Starring Academy Award winner Matthew McConaughey (Dallas Buyers Club, Interstellar), Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Belle, Beyond the Lights), Keri Russell (Mission Impossible III, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) and Mahershala Ali (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 & 2), Free State of Jones tells the incredible true story of Newton Knight (McConaughey) and his rebellion against the Confederacy in Jones County, Mississippi, during the American Civil War.

Bringing together an unlikely band of poor white farmers and runaway slaves, Knight launched an uprising that led Jones County, Mississippi, to secede from the Confederacy, creating a Free State of Jones.

Directed by Gary Ross (Seabiscuit, Pleasantville), Free State of Jones will be released in UK cinemas on September 30, 2016.
