&Privé HD to premiere ‘Free State of Jones’ on 5 Nov - nairrk - 10-31-2017

MUMBAI: English movie channel &Privé HD is all set to bring the Indian television premiere of ‘Free State of Jones’ on 5 November at 1 pm and 9 pm.

The riveting historical drama by acclaimed director Gary Ross is based during the American Civil War and stars Academy Award-winning actors Matthew McConaughey and Mahershala Ali in central roles.

The film chronicles the story of Newton Knight (McConaughey), a poor farmer from Jones County, Mississippi, who flees the army where he had served as a battlefield nurse after witnessing Confederate authorities confiscating his neighbours’ livestock and grain.

He goes on to takes refuge in the bayou with a small group of slaves who have run away from a nearby plantation, and as their commander, he leads the guerrilla army against the Confederacy during the war.

McConaughey’s portrayal of Knight is impeccable as he embodies an ordinary man radicalized by his desperate circumstances. Brought together by a common fight against poverty, we see Knight battling to hold this coalition together as a political force in the face of Ku Klux Klan terror.
