Set against the antebellum South, THE BIRTH OF A NATION follows Nat Turner (Nate Parker), a literate slave and preacher, whose financially strained owner, Samuel Turner (Armie Hammer), accepts an offer to use Nat's preaching to subdue unruly slaves. As he witnesses countless atrocities - against himself and his fellow slaves - Nat orchestrates an uprising in the hopes of leading his people to freedom. -Fox Searchlight Pictures


What first should be said about The Birth Of A Nation, the feature filmmaking debut of director, writer, producer and star Nate Parker, is that it’s often an overly earnest biopic about 19th century Virginia slave Nat Turner. And what must then follow is an acknowledgment that such criticisms don’t matter so much in the face of this film’s ferocious moral anger. Dramatising how Turner’s slow awakening to the misery experienced by his fellow slaves led to a brief, bloody uprising, The Birth Of A Nation builds to that violent revolution with a slow burn that soon explodes with the force of a long-suppressed societal psychic wail. This may not be the most nuanced of films, but its blunt-force impact leaves one shaken.
