It is hot and humid here in Ky and all I want to do is stay inside where it is cool. This weekend would be a great time to go check out a new movie, eat some popcorn, and stay cool. And who doesn't like Matthew McConaughey-nice to look at and that southern drawl gets me every time.
Based on a true story, Academy-Award winner Matthew McConaughey stars as Newt Knight, a Southern farmer who became a leader that inspired a rebellion.
Knight rallied those who believed that, no man ought to tell another man what he s got to live for - or what he s got to die for. He and his men fought for freedom, equality, and the ideal that, no one can own a child of God.
The film explores the issues of class inequality and race relations that permeate the south during the Civil War. It also tells the story of men and women during this tenuous time who have a strong faith in God, but are dealing with a moral struggle in regards to that inequality and the laws they are forced to follow.
I hope you ll have a moment to screen the trailer below for the full depth and feel of this epic film.
