About the Movie

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.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: If you forgive him enough to see it, The Birth of a Nation offers a troubling tangle of the personal and historical. But above all else it's commercial, an entertainment of purpose and some power. – Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice, Oct 7, 2016

Rotten: A seriously damaged and inadequate movie ... its defects reveal traits of character-arrogance, vanity, and self-importance-that exert an unfortunately strong influence on Parker's directorial choices. – Richard Brody, New Yorker, Oct 10, 2016

Fresh: The Birth of a Nation is a flawed but fairly compelling chapter of the American story that powerfully resonates with how that story is playing out today. – Ann Hornaday, Washington Post, Oct 7, 2016

Fresh: A fast-moving, deeply absorbing, and thoroughly exciting directorial debut. – Tirdad Derakhshani, Philadelphia Inquirer, Oct 6, 2016
