Synopsis Casting himself turns out to be his best choice as a filmmaker....He delivers a performance here of slow-simmering conviction; we can see the will to resist developing behind Turner’s eyes, a quiet storm building scene by scene.[A] big, unabashedly ambitious picture, heavy with the weight of history. But its best moments turn out to be the smaller human ones... -- Grade: B+3.5 stars out of 4 -- [A] movie of potent provocation and surging humanity that ranks with the year's best.THE BIRTH OF A NATION is at its freshest and subtlest observing the social dynamics of the pre-war South...[I]t’s admirably difficult, raising thorny questions about ends and means, justice and mercy, and the legacy of racism that lies at the root of our national identity.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.
