Matthew McConaughey in “The Free State of Jones”:
Correspondingly, a week back whilst watching a movie (The free state of Jones) with my father, I saw him being lost into it. As he was being reminded of something really special, possibly of the best period of his life. Nevertheless, I shook his legs off and with instance, a conversation commenced. And it went slightly like… Well! Take a look,
I: – Dad? Dad? What’s up? Are you okay?
Dad: – Yeah, umm. Nothing.
I: – What’s in your mind dad?
Dad: – Not much, the movie slightly reminds me of the good old days. Everything was so peaceful and gentle. And you see this guy Matthew McConaughey? His appearance takes me back to Sixties, man! The way he is serving the king. With a thought I feel like, as if I’m all young again.
I:- Do they used to wear such attires in 60’s?
Dad :- Absolutely! All civilized by each sight. This speaks about sixties my son! Yet, the 60’s feel is not just radiated through its attires. From the dialogues to the attires, it exhibits the feel of sixties.
I :- Ahan! Do you guys used to have story write-ups as similar to the apparent movie?
Dad :- Oh yes! And It wouldn’t be wrong to state it that, they seemed to copy-up the style of sixties while creating it or they were too inspired by the advent of 60’s that they had to construct a movie which could mirror us the genuine credibility of 60’s era.

Let’s flashback on what basically happened.
Well, it was a county that elected John H. Powell, the “cooperation” as an anti-secession candidate, so that he could represent them at Mississippi’s secession convention in January 1861.
Initially he reached in, he found that there was no opportunity to vote against the secession, there were existing two issues, which were of delaying secession until other states had seceded. Powell voted against immediate secession on the first ballot, but that particular option failed. Left with no other selection, he signed the Declaration of Secession. Later, a deep passionate struggle led him towards the success of his opinions.
His grave, epitaph stated “He lived for others”.
Nevertheless Matthew plays his role, while being him in the movie.
