serpentine913:

THE BIRTH OF A NATION

Nate Parker’s groundbreaking The Birth Of A Nation just smashed the Sundance Film Festival record, selling for an jaw-dropping $17.5 million.  In addition to playing the lead, slave rebellion leader Nat Turner, Parker also wrote, produced and directed the film.

Word out of Sundance is that Parker’s film is a gripping and emotional game-changer that literally makes Best Picture Oscar winner 12 Years  Slave look like a Disney movie.

“The film had audience members crying in their seats and jumping to their feet in a prolonged standing ovation at the film’s conclusion.” -DEADLINE
