The Underground Railroad
The Underground Railroad

A few years after the Underground series, Barry Jenkins offers us to take the Underground Railroad again with The Underground Railroad, which is now unveiled with a slightly conceptual trailer (it is played in reverse) and which will be posted soon on Amazon.

Based on the novel by Colson Whitehead (who won the Pulitzer Prize for this book), The Underground Railroad follows sixteen-year-old Cora (Thuso Mbedu), a slave on a cotton plantation in pre-Civil War Georgia.

Abandoned by her mother when she was a child, she somehow survives the violence of her condition. When Caesar, a slave recently arrived from Virginia, offers to flee to reach the Northern Free States with him, she accepts. This begins an incredible odyssey for Cora, taking her from South Carolina to Indiana via Tennessee, where she will do anything to win her freedom.

The Underground Railroad, therefore, features Thuso Mbedu, Chase W. Dillon, Aaron Pierre, Joel Edgerton, William Jackson Harper, and Amber Gray.
