60th BFI London Film Festival Review – The Birth of a Nation (2016)

The Birth of a Nation, 2016.

Directed by Nate Parker.

Starring Nate Parker, Armie Hammer, Aja Naomi King, Penelope Ann Miller and Jackie Earle Haley.

Synopsis:

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.

Is it important to separate the artist from their art? This is the necessary, nay fundamental, question when approaching The Birth of a Nation, the impressively mounted feature debut from Nate Parker whose illustrious pedigree has been overshadowed in recent months following the rape allegations centered on the filmmaker and screenwriter Jean Celestin (Parker was ultimately acquitted; Celestin was convicted, only

“The Birth of a Nation” looks to survive controversy and contend for awards

Without fail, every single year there are Oscar hopefuls that fall victim to controversy. Some are well founded, some are pure smoke, and some are caught in between. This week, the year’s most controversy laden film hits theaters. In fact, it’s out today. The controversy isn’t due to the film’s content, but the past actions of its filmmaker. I won’t get into what Nate Parker and his co-writer Jean McGianni Celestin were accused of and the subsequent issues, but it’s clear that to some degree, it has affected the release. Back at the Sundance Film Festival, it was hailed as a potential Best Picture frontrunner. Now, it’s possibly an Oscar also-ran. What happened? Well, at least in my opinion, hype died down and it’s being seen for the flawed work that it truly is. Controversy aside, it’s just a mixed bag of a movie.

Movie Review – The Birth of a Nation (2016)

The Birth of a Nation, 2016.

Written and Directed by Nate Parker.

Starring Nate Parker, Armie Hammer, Penelope Ann Miller, Jackie Earle Haley, Mark Boone Jr., Aja Naomi King, Aunjanue Ellis, Dwight Henry, Gabrielle Union, and Tony Espinosa.

Synopsis:

Nat Turner, a literate slave and preacher in the antebellum South, orchestrates an uprising.

Addressing the elephant in the room right off the bat, yes Nate Parker (producer, writer and director of The Birth of a Nation) did sexually take advantage of an inebriated college woman roughly over a decade ago who would go on to commit suicide in 2012. It is a horrible story (especially considering Nate Parker got off clean while only his friend that was also present received some punishment) and his actions should be condemned. I am not here to judge Nate Parker as a human being or state what should have been done, or even unfairly criticize his

Movie Review: The Birth of a Nation

The Birth of a Nation is so heart-wrenchingly moving. A biography of the emancipation movement that began with Nate Turner, slave and preacher, a character played brilliantly by writer/director Nate Parker. The story begins in the antebellum South in 1809. Nate as a very young man is thought to be a leader that will do great things, having some unique marks that was felt only a leader would have. Shortly into the story the despicable conditions a slave community would have to endure was deplorable. Nat’s father Isaac (Dwight Henry) set out one night to try and salvage some food for his family. He was caught by a group of runaway slave patrolmen without a pass. The very evil ring leader of the posse Raymond Cobb (Jackie Earle Haley) was horrifically confrontational, and the scene turned into a bloodbath, with Isaac narrowly escaping, returning to his family and quickly saying goodbye.

The Weekend Warrior 10/7/16: The Girl on a Train, Birth of a Nation, Middle School, Newtown

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.

This Past Weekend:

Another bad weekend where nothing really popped, which is bad news for a month at the box office where only Clint Eastwood’s Sully exceeded any expectations. Tim Burton’s new film Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children came out just below my predictions with $29 million, but the Mark Wahlberg-Peter Berg disaster flick Deepwater Horizon was right around where I predicted with $20.2 million. The comedy Masterminds tanked with just $6.5 million for the weekend to end up in sixth place while Disney’s The Queen of Katwe did slightly better than predicted with $2.5 million.

The first full weekend in October has a good deal of competition from the release of the video game Mafia III to the

The Birth Of A Nation Trailer Teases Nate Parker’s Tour-De-Force

Sundance darling The Birth of a Nation has fast become one of the early dark horses going into this year’s awards circuit – and it’s little wonder why.

Set against the antebellum South, Nate Parker’s creative tour-de-force – Parker wrote, directed, produced and starred in the inspired race drama – revolves around the true story of one Nat Turner, the slave and preacher who famously staged one of the most important uprisings in American history in the Virginia of 1830.

Indeed, early buzz for The Birth of a Nation on the festival circuit ensured Parker’s passion project became the highest sale in Sundance history, and you can get a gist of the drama that awaits in October via the movie’s official synopsis. Taking point as Nat Turner, Parker leads the charge as a “literate slave and preacher, whose financially strained owner, Samuel Turner, accepts an offer to use Nat
