Universal City, CA, July 19, 2016 – Matthew McConaughey (Intersteller, Dallas Buyers Club) delivers a towering performance as Mississippi farmer turned rebellious revolt leader in the action-drama Free State of Jones, a powerful account of an extraordinary uprising against the Confederacy during the civil war.

From STX Entertainment (The Gift, Bad Moms), Free State of Jones also stars Keri Russell (Planet of the Apes, “The Americans”) and Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Concussion, Beyond The Lights).



Oscar® winner Matthew McConaughey stars in this epic, untold true story of defiant Southern farmer, Newt Knight and his extraordinary armed rebellion against the Confederacy during the Civil War. Despite overwhelming odds, Knight banded together with other small farmers and local slaves and launched an uprising that led Jones County, Mississippi to secede from the Confederacy, creating a Free State of Jones. Written and directed by four-time Oscar® nominee Gary Ross (The Hunger Games, Seabiscuit), critics are hailing Free State of Jones as “riveting” (A.O. Scott, The New York Times).
