Free State of Jones is a bit overly romanticized
5 second plot: Newton is a 'nurse' in the US Civil War. He doesn't believe in what he's fighting for anymore and deserts. He is hunted down but manages to stay one step ahead. It doesn't take long for him to find a whole bunch of soulmates. Together they fight for justice.
5 second review: There are some very realistic scenes in here that will make you realize what it was like to live in that period in time. It does feel a bit overly romanticized to make it a more comfortable view for a modern audience. I don't know if this guy really was the saint the movie depicts him as, but at least he fought on the side of the good guys. Right?
