Oscar-winning director Damien Chazelle reteams with LA LA LAND star Ryan Gosling for the riveting story behind the first manned mission to the moon, focusing on Neil Armstrong and the decade leading to the historic Apollo 11 flight.

MUDBOUND
2017, Netflix, 134 min, USA, Dir: Dee Rees

Two Mississippi families -- one black, one white -- confront the brutal realities of prejudice, farming and friendship during the 1940s in this acclaimed drama based on the Hillary Jordan novel. Garrett Hedlund, Jason Mitchell, Carey Mulligan, Jason Clarke and Mary J. Blige lead an outstanding ensemble cast. Nominated for four Oscars, including Best Supporting Actress (Blige), Best Adapted Screenplay (Virgil Williams and Dee Rees) and Best Cinematography (Rachel Morrison). "The director and her cinematographer Rachel Morrison do wonders with the elements that batter the people of every race and social class in the Delta. But it's the storm raging inside these characters that rivets our attention and makes MUDBOUND a film that grabs you and won't let go." - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone.
