Directed by Dee Rees
- The film was premiered at The Sundance Film Festival 2017 where it received a standing ovation.
- Second film with Garrett Hedlund and Carey Mulligan playing alongside each other, the first was Inside Llewyn Davis (2013).
- Mary J. Blige related closely to her character, as she had an Aunt who embodied her character Florence, who had worked for and raised a bunch of kids in a white family who loved her. Additionally, she saw her character also in the experiences of her grandmother.
- Director Dee Rees shared photographs from the film's era with Carey Mulligan as part of her preparation, and she was drawn to a particular one of a woman with a really short fringe (bangs) who looked so awkward to her, which she thought reflected her character Laura. Thus, she cut her hair in a similar style for the film.
- Jonathan Banks (Pappy)
