My thoughts on The Birth of a Nation

ENTER SLAVERY 2 LA

“Fantastic”


I really enjoyed this film! I thought that Nate Parker did a terrific job with his directorial debut as well as showing his acting and writing chops. The story is very engaging and compelling, it tells the story of a slave, Nat Turner, played by Nate Parker who leads a slave rebellion. As the film progresses, I never got bored at any point. I was completely engaged and I thought the film was really well paced. In terms of the supporting cast, they were all solid and mostly full of unknowns except for the guy from Preacher and Armie Hammer. In terms of the cinematography, I thought the film was very well shot. The soundtrack was also fantastic.

It’s a very thought provoking/riveting film that gives you insight into how slavery was during the 1800s, the story about Nat Turner and his rebellion and about the inhumane act of slavery/racism in general.

Rating – ★★★★
