The Birth of a Nation Review - MLive

MLive: "The Birth of a Nation" is most audacious in its title. Translating the story of historical figure Nat Turner, who led a revolt of African-American slaves against their masters, director/screenwriter/actor Nate Parker attempts to wrestle those five words away from D.W. Griffith's 1915 film romanticizing the Ku Klux Klan. It isn't appropriation by Parker. It's an attempt at hostile takeover, a cinematic revolt inspired by his subject.

The story is too old to be commented.
