The Birth of a Nation

Ambitious first-timer Nate Parker writes, directs and stars in this blunt biographical drama about Nat Turner, a literate slave and preacher in the antebellum South who orchestrated an infamous uprising in 1831. The whole thing is beautifully and violently mounted. But it ain't subtle. 120 minutes R.
