Like last year’s “Trumbo”, “The Free State of Jones” is guaranteed to 
earn my vote for best film of 2016 for its combination of film-making 
genius and political commitment. If “Trumbo” might have been a success 
with someone other than Bryan Cranston in the title role, it was his 
presence that made you feel like you were watching the legendary 
screenwriter himself rather than an actor. Matthew McConaughey elevates 
“The Free State of Jones” in the same way. Present in every scene, he is 
utterly convincing as the anti-secessionist guerrilla leader who was the 
walking embodiment of what Noel Ignatiev called the Race Traitor.
