[5.00/10] Free State of Jones (2016)

Free State of Jones (2016)

Quick Review: Playing more like a history lesson, rather than a proper period piece, and a tedious one for that matter, "Free State of Jones" handles its otherwise very important real-life story pretty heavy-handedly with the result being a well-intended, albeit muddled, and rather tiresome experience to sit through, in spite of the excellent acting, especially from its dedicated lead. At least the film captures the authenticity of the CW era pretty finely, also featuring some awe-inspiring locations.

Tedious is about the worst thing for a historical movie.

Agreed. And this one was definitely tedious.
