This movie looks fantastic. Matthew McConaughey has been on such a roll the last few years. He keeps turning in killer performance after killer performance, and it looks like that will only continue with “Free State of Jones.”

Here’s the plot description, via STX Entertainment:

Set during the Civil War, “Free State of Jones” tells the story of defiant Southern farmer, Newt Knight, and his extraordinary armed rebellion against the Confederacy. Banding together with other small farmers and local slaves, Knight launched an uprising that led Jones County, Mississippi to secede from the Confederacy, creating a Free State of Jones. Knight continued his struggle into Reconstruction, distinguishing him as a compelling, if controversial, figure of defiance long beyond the War.
