In 1863, Mississippi farmer Newt Knight serves as a medic for the Confederate Army. Opposed to slavery, Knight would rather help the wounded than fight the Union. After his nephew dies in battle, Newt returns home to Jones County to safeguard his family but is soon branded an outlaw deserter. Forced to flee, he finds refuge with a group of runaway slaves hiding out in the swamps. Forging an alliance with the slaves and other farmers, Knight leads a rebellion that would forever change history.

The story is interspersed with the saga of Newton’s great-great-great grandson, who is arrested under Mississippi’s miscegenation laws 85 years after the war. Since he is of one-eighth black descent, under Mississippi law of the day he is considered black, and therefore cannot legally marry his long-time sweetheart. He is sentenced to five years in prison, but his conviction is thrown out by theMississippi Supreme Court rather than risk the law being declared unconstitutional.

BE SURE TO CHECK THIS MOVIE OUT. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED. ENJOY!!

MUST SEE MOVIE

Good evening everybody. It’s been awhile since I’ve posted but after seeing this movie, I couldn’t help but give you a heads up on one of the best movies I’ve seen all year.

DEEPWATER HORIZON

This movie has it all.
Suspense, tragedy, hope, fear, love, relief, even anger. If you are looking for a rollercoaster ride of a movie, this is it. And to make it even more intense is the fact that it is based on real events.

Deepwater Horizon was an ultra-deepwater, dynamically positioned,semi-submersible offshore drilling rig[8]owned by Transocean. Built in 2001 inSouth Korea by Hyundai Heavy Industries,[9] the rig was commissioned by R&B Falcon, a later asset of Transocean,[10] registered in Majuro and leased to BP from 2001 until September 2013.[11] In September 2009, the rig drilled the deepest oil well in history at a vertical depth of 35,050 ft (10,683 m) and measured depth of 35,055 ft (10,685 m)[12]in the Tiber Oil Field at Keathley Canyonblock 102, approximately 250 miles (400 km) southeast of Houston, in 4,132 feet (1,259 m) of water.[13]

On 20 April 2010, while drilling at theMacondo Prospect, an uncontrollableblowout caused an explosion on the rigthat killed 11 crewmen and ignited a fireball visible from 40 miles (64 km) away.[14] The fire was inextinguishable and, two days later, on 22 April, theHorizon sank, leaving the well gushing at the seabed and causing the largest oil spill in U.S. waters.[15] A Mark Wahlbergmovie called Deepwater Horizonshowcasing the events of the explosion was released on 30 September 2016.
