Rating: 4/5 -- The Birth of a Nation is brutal and sad and difficult to watch at times. However, it also shines a light on a dark time in our nation's history and on a story that too many of us know precious little about. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- To see the strange fruit hanging from the trees in the aftermath, while Nina Simone interprets Billie Holiday's iconic song on the soundtrack, overtly captures Parker's outpouring of anger and injustice. Full Review

Rating: 2.5 -- A frustratingly incomplete half-measure overall, however understandable the sense that it might've been something more must have felt back in Park City. That final shot, though... damn, that really is something. Full Review

3.5 stars out of 4 -- [A] movie of potent provocation and surging humanity that ranks with the year's best.

Rating: 5/10 -- There's a pulpy, macabre sense of thrill once the rebellion begins and white blood is vengefully spilt, but as in the history books, it's over before it truly begun. It's a shame that a film with so much potential is content simply to clear a low bar. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- There's a sense of rightful restoration and acknowledgment here, a more realistic notion of The Birth of a Nation. Full Review

With a fresh set of eyes, Parker effortlessly brings this past into the present and although many films dealing with slavery are lauded as courageous and inspirational simply for being, with "Birth of a Nation," he's actually made one that is. Full Review

Product Description:

This historical drama recounts a real-life slave revolt that occurred in 1831 Virginia, led by a black preacher named Nat Turner (Nate Parker). Turner is ordered by his master (Armie Hammer) to tour a number of local plantations, delivering sermons to the other slaves that will urge them against violence and any thoughts of rebellion. However, he is so appalled and sickened by the horrors he sees during his travels that he is eventually moved to fight back against the evils of slavery. Aja Naomi King and Gabrielle Union co-star. Parker wrote, directed, and stars in THE BIRTH OF A NATION, which won the Grand Jury Prize at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival.
