[6.75/10] The Birth of a Nation (2016)

The Birth of a Nation (2016)

Quick Review: Compelling, if wildly uneven, often difficult to watch, and beautifully-filmed in its own subdued way, this is yet another solid movie dealing with slavery, which tells us a story that is as much personal as it is one with significant historic value. Though it lacks the dramatic impact, and splendid visuals of "12 Years a Slave", "The Birth of a Nation" does make you care a lot for its suffering colored characters, played plausibly by the determined cast.
