Wow.

Never seen so many people cry, shudder, turn away, or cover their eyes in a movie theater.

Last thirty minutes of this are unlike anything I have ever watched.

Do yourself a favor and see this movie as soon as possible.

I really like that actor whose name I can't remember.  He was in Serenity.  This is on my to watch list as well.

Chiwetel Ejiofor.

His performance in this is one of the five best since Daniel Plainview, imo.

All the people that say the civil war was unnecessary and slavery would have died a natural death in a few decades should see this movie.

The preview made it look so uninteresting, now I'm confused.

Is there any movie that it's similar to ? Make just in tone or the overall feeling?

Was it worse than the mass death & destruction that was the Civil War? I doubt it.

The fact of the matter is that the Civil War was not necessary to end chattel slavery in America. Other countries ended the practice without having a war.

50% The others were probably pretty cool to their slaves.

I know if I owned slaves, I'd treat them pretty fair. Phone Post

A lot of people do not know about this, but there was actually white slavery in early American history. There are lots of Americans who are descended from white slaves in America who were from England, Scotland, or Ireland. How about a movie about this forgotten part of American history sometime?
