Garrett Hedlund (TRON: Legacy, Unbroken) and Jason Mitchell (Straight Outta Compton, Detroit) play two WWII combat veterans who forge a profound connection in the first trailer for the post-war period drama "Mudbound," which also stars Carey Mulligan, Jason Clarke, and Mary J. Blige.

Directed by Dee Rees, who previously made the Emmy-winning HBO biopic "Bessie," the Netflix-acquired film, which premiered to rave reviews at Sundance this year, takes place in 1940s rural Mississippi and follows two farming families -- one white and one black -- as they struggle to make ends meet amidst racial tensions and a slumping economy.

Adapted by Rees and TV writer Virgil Williams (ER, 24, Criminal Minds) from the prize-winning 2008 book by Hillary Jordan, "Mudbound" features a solid supporting cast that includes Jonathan Banks, Rob Morgan, Kelvin Harrison Jr., and Kerry Cahill.

"Mudbound" will screen this week at the Toronto International Film Festival and next month will play at the London and New York Film Festivals, before arriving in select theaters and on Netflix November 17th.

synopsis:
Set in the post-WWII South, Mudbound is an epic story of two families pitted against a barbaric social hierarchy and an unrelenting landscape as they simultaneously fight the battle at home and the battle abroad. The film is about friendship, unacknowledged heritage and the unending struggle for and against the land. Newly transplanted from the quiet civility of Memphis, the McAllan family is underprepared and overly hopeful for Henry's (Jason Clarke) grandiose farming dreams. Laura (Carey Mulligan) struggles to keep the faith in her husband's losing venture, meanwhile, for Hap (Rob Morgan) and Florence Jackson (Mary J. Blige), whose families have worked the land for generations, every day is a losing venture as they struggle bravely to build some small dream of their own. The war upends both families’ plans as their returning loved ones, Jamie (Garrett Hedlund) and Ronsel (Jason Mitchell) forge a fast, uneasy friendship that challenges them all.
