New York Times — The drama “Mudbound” debuted to a standing ovation and rave reviews earlier this year at Sundance, kicking off inevitable awards speculation, especially for its director, Dee Rees. If Ms. Rees were to land an Academy Award nomination for best director, she would be only the fifth woman, and the first black woman, to do so.

Based on the novel by Hillary Jordan, “Mudbound” (due in theaters Nov. 17) tells the story of two families, one black, the other white, eking out hardscrabble lives under the scourge of fierce racism in rural Mississippi during and after World War II. Ms. Rees, whose credits include “Pariah” from 2011 and the 2015 HBO film “Bessie,” said she was drawn to “Mudbound” in part because of its lasting relevance. She also believes the question of whether progress has been made in Hollywood reveals that much still needs to change. “If you have to ask the question, you kind of know the answer,” she said.

Every one of you had brutal scenes. How did you recoup from that, or is that part of your job?
Garrett Hedlund — Every bit of it was quite emotional, and we had an amazing team that made it seem easy. Because it was an insanely short shoot, everybody came to play.
Carey Mulligan — I do quite a lot of films that are emotional. So a long time ago I stopped taking it home. I did a play in New York about seven years ago where I played a paranoid schizophrenic. It was very bleak. And after that I realized I couldn’t take it home at the end of the day. I had to sort of wear a hat and take the hat off.

Even though “Mudbound” is a period film, it feels deeply relevant today. With the events in Charlottesville and neo-Nazis on the rise, do you think that people are more aware of something that black people in this country knew never went away?
Dee Rees — It’s like we just pulled the tablecloth off. This table’s always been here; we just now pulled off the cloth and said, “Oh, wait.” So I think it’s forcing a recognition for seeing an interrogation of histories. If I can go three grandmothers back and find a slave, that means someone else can go three grandmothers back and find a slave owner. When you interrogate your histories, it forces you to rethink who you are and where you are.

Was it surprising that things maybe haven’t changed all that much?
Carey Mulligan — I was surprised to the extent of it, that part of society still holds archaic, unforgivable beliefs about things. I’ve been shocked in the last year by the extent of it. I think I was a little bit naïve. Where people felt before they had to keep a secret, now they’re given a platform to speak these things out loud, which is crazy.
