Comes an epic wartime action romance about one man’s defiance which led to a revolution on and off the battlefield. THE FREE STATE OF JONES is based on the thrilling and moving true story of Newton Knight (McConaughey), a soldier who, in a time of conflict that divided a nation, flees the battlefields after being disillusioned by the horrors of war that touched his own family. On the run, he rallies the support of fellow deserters to lead an uprising against their former comrades, in the process creating a free safe haven and embarking on a forbidden love that would ultimately stand the test of time.
