The period piece stars Matthew McConaughey as farmer Newt Knight who starts his own fight against the Confederacy. We have our first look at Free State Of Jones thanks to EW who also spoke to its star Matthew McConaughey

“It’s a story about America and its relation with the individual and freedom. The period of Reconstruction following the Civil War is still under construction today. Why we were divided by race instead of being united by class didn’t make sense to Newt Knight back then, and it wouldn’t make sense to him today.”
