A good period piece set in the rarely covered period between the American Revolution and the Civil War. It makes connections with the past and what we as viewers know to be the future. You can also learn a great deal about where the different countries were on slavery at that time.
My only caveat to an otherwise glowing review is the handling of the Bible by one of the kidnapped Africans on trial. It didn't seem necessary in any way to the story and was out of place in a number of ways.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
