The Birth of a Nation


In writing my review for Free State of JonesI couldn’t help but think about The Birth of a Nation, which is written and directed by Nate Parker (The Great Debaters, Beyond the Lights). He also stars in the leading role as Nat Turner, another historical figure whose little-known story hasn’t reached the big screen. The buzz surrounding this film has been incredible ever since it premiered at Sundance and won the Audience award as well as the Grand Jury prize. Moreover, Fox Searchlight bought the film for a whopping $17.5 million-a Sundance record! Check out the official trailer below. Hits theaters this October 2016!
