The only thing in common with the 1914 DW Griffith movie is the title. this movie has nothing to do with the plot of the 1914 movie. Nate Parker co-wrote, directed and stars in this movie about the slave rebellion in 1831. And if you learn what happen in history class, you know the outcome of the movie, so please don't give it away. Parker plays Nate Turner who was born a slave and in no time he learn how to read and became a pastor. So the movie is slow towards the rebellion, but i urge you to stay with the movie, despite a few uneasy scenes in the movie. I hope young people who can get a chance to see it, but i don't think so because of the R rating. But believe me, the movie is a compelling history lesson that many people should see.
