 MUDBOUND is a US historical drama in which two families live side-by-side on a farm in rural Mississippi.

Discrimination

Characters display racist attitudes and behaviour including use of racist terms (for example, 'nigger', 'coon', 'spade', 'darky' and 'jig'). The work does not condone discriminatory attitudes or language.

Violence

Two characters are severely beaten in an act of racially motivated violence. A character is mutilated, without clear visual detail. There is sight of a bloodied dead body in the aftermath of an off-screen murder. Additionally, there are occasional scenes of bloody combat violence including sight of gory head wounds.

There are infrequent, non-graphic references to child sex abuse.

Nudity

There is brief sexualised full frontal female nudity.

Language

There is infrequent use of very strong language ('c**t'). Milder terms include 'whore', 'bullshit', 'crap', 'piss' and 'son of a bitch'.

There are occasional moderate sex references. Other issues include aftermath images of a bloody leg injury. An injured horse is shot off screen, and a chicken is slaughtered. There is also a scene of miscarriage.
