‘Free State of Jones’ – Red Carpet Premiere

Written by , Posted in Fashion

Though Matthew McConaughey was noticeably missing from the red carpet for his upcoming film, ‘Free State of Jones,’ there are still some pretty pictures worth seeing. Below is a quote about the film’s contents. Scroll down for images from the event.

Written and directed by four-time Oscar® nominee Gary Ross (The Hunger Games, Seabiscuit, Pleasantville), and starring Oscar® winner Matthew McConaughey, Free State of Jones is an epic action-drama set during the Civil War, and 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.
