It's one of Sundance's biggest breakout hits this year. And since premiering at Park City back in January, the film has been generating considerable buzz. Netflix is certainly hoping to drum up some Oscar chatter as well.

Check out the new full-length trailer for the post-war Mississippi Delta drama "Mudbound," starring Jason Mitchell (Straight Outta Compton, Detroit) and Garrett Hedlund (Unbroken, TRON: Legacy) as two WWII combat veterans who return to their rural home, only to face a different kind of conflict -- one fueled by long-simmering racism and economic despair.

Co-starring Carey Mulligan, Jason Clarke, Breaking Bad's Jonathan Banks, Stranger Things' Rob Morgan and legendary R&B singer Mary J. Blige, the Netflix drama is based on the 2008 novel by Hillary Jordan.

Directed by Emmy-nominated director Dee Rees (HBO's Bessie), who also co-wrote the adapted script with television producer-writer Virgil Williams (TV's Criminal Minds, ER), "Mudbound" will open in select theaters and be released on Netflix, simultaneously, beginning Friday, 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.
